I‘ve written before about Foundation Beyond Belief:
Foundation Beyond Belief is a new 501c3 charitable and educational foundation created (1) to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanistic generosity, and (2) to support a nationwide nonreligious parent education program.
This is a terrific opportunity for non-religious people everywhere. We’ve never had a true “atheist” charity we could point to and say to others, “Look at the good work non-theists are doing!”
Kiva is fantastic, no doubt, and atheists have given in bunches, but Kiva is not a non-theistic organization.
Now we have Foundation Beyond Belief. (Full disclosure:) I serve on the board of the group and we are gearing up for a major launch of the foundation. It’ll come in phases, and this is the first one.
In a few months, you’ll see a website and a roll-out of the wonderful charities that foundation money will be given to, charities which serve all people, not just atheists.There are a couple ways you can get involved right now.
The first way is to join the Facebook group.
The second way — the way we really need you to help right now — is to give any amount you can to our cause.
Later, there will be other ways to donate (non-PayPal), but for now, this will help us get some of the infrastructure together.
Thanks for your help, and you’ll hear more about this foundation soon enough.
