This is game-changing news for the Secular Student Alliance:
Secular Student Alliance supporters Jeff Hawkins and Janet Strauss are excited that the SSA is growing so rapidly. Jeff and Janet know that students are an essential demographic if we want a more secular world. That’s why they helped us in 2011 as we added 110 secular campus groups, sent 303 packages of tabling supplies, held our largest annual conference ever, and organized 94 speakers’ bureau events around the country.
But we know we can do more.
That’s why they’re challenging SSA supporters to take it to the next level. They are pledging a $250,000 matching offer – whatever you donate, they’ll match dollar-for-dollar up to a quarter of a million dollars!
Jeff Hawkins told us, “Janet and I love what the Secular Student Alliance accomplished in 2011. We are thrilled they have set their sights even higher in 2012. Building the secular student movement is an essential investment in our nation’s future. We challenge everyone who wants a more secular future to join us in contributing.”
It’s no wonder they’re so supportive: Just take a look at the SSA’s growth over the past few years:
A quarter-million dollar matching campaign is a *huge* show of support for a group I believe is the most important one in our movement. But it doesn’t mean anything unless you give Hawkins (the person who invented both the Palm Pilot and the Treo) and Strauss something to match. So please consider making a donation to the SSA!
