The producers of the stage musical Jerry Springer - the Opera have had six applications for the £5,000 donation rejected by Maggie's Centres - and two of them have come from churches.
One request came from a church that needs the money to rebuild its spire, the other from a church that wants to replace its roof.
Cancer charity Maggie's Centres initially accepted the donation, which would have helped build a new centre in London, but changed its mind after pressure from hardline group Christian Voice.
Those involved in Jerry Springer - the Opera say they won't reveal the identity of the organisation that eventually benefits from the money because they didn't want a repeat of the incident.
A spokesman for the show said: "We are delighted that we have had six requests for the money, including two from bona fide Christians, as opposed to extremists.
"Once a decision is made about who the money should go to, we probably won't publicise it, for obvious reasons."
