The mission of Foundation Beyond Belief:

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.

Since our launch in 2010, our members have saved a children's home in Nepal from dissolution, funded science education in India and in US public schools, and supported efforts to fight global warming and protect biodiversity.

We put textbooks in Uganda's humanist schools and funded peacebuilding teams in Uganda's conflict areas. We supported efforts to improve access to health care for marginalized populations on four continents and in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake and Japanese tsunami, as well as lifesaving work in the recent drought and famine in East Africa.

We’ve helped open a new school for girls in Pakistan and funded a four-year college scholarship for indigenous Guatemalans. We've added humanist voices and dollars to the fight for LGBT rights, empowered adoptions, helped feed the hungry, and worked to protect the most vulnerable – refugees in war, victims of torture, women under threat of religious violence, political asylees, people struggling with addiction, and those seeking dignity at the end of their lives.

Through our Challenge the Gap program, we seek the best expressions of non-secular worldviews and have funded effective, non-proselytizing charities based in all five major world religions.

Our Volunteers Beyond Belief network has put humanist compassion to work with over one hundred volunteer events in 23 cities across the US, from AIDS hospices and food pantries to blood drives and environmental protection projects. And we’ve raised over $400,000 to fight blood cancers through the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

There's no supernatural power to make this world a better place. It's up to us. Foundation Beyond Belief is humanity at work.
