For months now, I’ve been writing 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.
For a while, we’ve been working on getting the website ready, getting the first slate of charities chosen, and building a fan base.
We’re finally ready to go:
This is a chance for us to prove we’re just as capable of volunteering our time and giving our money as any religious person.
This is an opportunity for us to help causes we may not typically think about.
This is a project I’ve been excited about ever since I first got involved with it.
Here is how the program works:
You sign up for monthly donations (of your choosing) and then decide how you want your money divided up. There are 10 categories to choose from: environment, education, health, human rights, peace, poverty, children, animals, “big bang” (small charity, big impact), and the foundation itself. The charities within each category change each quarter (with nominations culled from FBB members).
Please consider this as a new year’s resolution for yourself: Give at least $20/month.
That’s what I’m doing.
If you can afford more, consider giving more.
Let this foundation grow and let it be a symbol of the power of Humanism and the effect that a bunch of atheists can have to make this world a better place.
