Foundation Beyond Belief’s Next Major Grant Will Benefit Starfish, a Group Helping Young Women in Guatemala

When we launched Foundation Beyond Belief in 2010, the plan was to encourage atheists to give to a bunch of amazing charities — 10 of them each quarter, to be precise — and help make giving to others a habit for secular people (who usually have no formal way to do that).
