Dawkins Foundation and Secular Coalition Join Forces

The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science and the Secular Coalition for America (SCA) have joined forces to promote science, reason, and a secular government.

According to a SCA press release, the two organizations each bring something very important to the table: “the Secular Coalition’s strong nonprofit and strategic planning experience, and the Dawkins Foundation’s strong web and social media savvy, scientific expertise, and broad outreach.”

A list of collaborative events is scheduled to take place in September and October through the SCA’s regularly-scheduled Capitol Hill Briefing program.

The SCA will help the Dawkins Foundation, which has existed in the United States as a private foundation, reorganize as a public foundation. (The UK analog of the Dawkins Foundation is unaffected by the partnership.) The reorganization should both broaden the donor base and reorganize the Board of Directors. Secular Coalition Executive Director Edwina Rogers and Deputy Director Aisha Goss will work in conjunction with the Dawkins Foundation and serve as management of the Dawkins Foundation during the partnership.
