Mission Statement

To demonstrate humanism at its best by supporting efforts to improve this world and this life, and to challenge humanists to embody the highest principles of humanism, including mutual care and responsibility.

Description

Foundation Beyond Belief is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanist generosity and compassion. We select and feature ten charitable organizations per quarter, one in each of the following cause areas:

  • The Natural World
  • Poverty and Health
  • Education
  • Human Rights
  • Challenge the Gap (charities based in other worldviews)

Members join the Foundation by signing up for amonthly automatic donation in the amount of their choice, then set up personal profiles to indicate how they would like their contribution distributed among the ten categories.

Active members can advocate for causes and help us choose the new beneficiaries each quarter. We also host a multi-author blog focused on humanism, philanthropy, and the intersection of the two.

Carefully selected for impact and efficiency, our featured beneficiaries may be founded on any worldview so long as they act in accordance with humanist values including mutual care, responsibility, and free inquiry and do not proselytize. At the end of each quarter, 100 percent of the donations is forwarded and a new slate of beneficiaries selected.

The Foundation also sponsors Volunteers Beyond Belief, a network of humanist volunteer teams in 12 U.S. cities, and Humanist Crisis Response, raising funds and awareness for major humanitarian crises worldwide.
