Schwab Charitable has suspended customers’ ability to donate to the National Rifle Association through the company's $10 billion donor-advised charitable fund.

According to CBS News, the charitable fund decided several months ago to halt donations to charities with ties to the NRA, one of the most powerful lobbying groups in the U.S. It comes in the midst of a drop in donations to the NRA, as well as allegations that it abused its nonprofit status.

I do not have an account with Schwab. If I did, I would close it and move my holdings elsewhere. I sent the NRA a contribution this morning in response to this.
