Foundation Beyond Belief Announces Q2 2014 Slate of Charities

The Foundation Beyond Belief has just announced its five beneficiaries for the new quarter — each charity will likely receive several thousands of dollars, courtesy of atheist donors:

POVERTY & HEALTH: 50 Cents. Period.

HUMAN RIGHTS: Igwe Study Project

CHALLENGE THE GAP: Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty

EDUCATION: Worldreader

THE NATURAL WORLD: The Greening of Detroit

In case you think it’s weird that FBB is offering a Baptist group as an option, please read this:

“The Baptist Joint Committee is delighted to partner with Foundation Beyond Belief,” said Brent Walker, executive director of BJC. “As Baptist Christians, we believe in religious liberty as a gift from God and the separation of church and state as a means of protecting it. We also affirm the rights of secular conscience and freedom from state-sponsored religion. Although our presuppositions and motivations may differ, we often find many areas of common ground on which to stand and work. Just as people of faith and the scions of the Enlightenment joined forces to pass the First Amendment more than two centuries ago, believers and non-believers alike can work together today to help protect it, for all of us.”

If you’re not already a member of the Foundation, please consider joining!
