The word "humanism" has a number of meanings, depending on who you ask. In different contexts, the word may reference philosophy, literary pursuits, values connected to religion, or secular movements looking to stand in contrast to it.
When FBB talks about humanism, we mean a philosophy for living that implores us to lead fulfilling, ethical lives. Without necessarily believing in the supernatural, we seek to meet human needs and solve human problems, both individually and collectively. In short, humanism is a philosophy of right-here, right-now integrity.
While many humanists eschew religious belief, we at FBB are less concerned with theological debate and more concerned with direct, compassionate action. We are a community that largely believes that no supernatural power will make the world a better place for us; we must do it ourselves. We invite anyone who shares this drive to join us.

During three grant cycles each year, Foundation Beyond Belief makes grants to charities working in the areas of Poverty & Health, Human Rights, Education, and the Natural World. However, once per year we hold a competitive application process to award one Compassionate Impact Grant to an organization working to solve a complex problem with innovative, evidence-based solutions.By FBB

This blog entry comes to us from Atheists of Polk County, a Florida-based volunteer group that is part of the Beyond Belief Network: is a collective of nonreligious clubs putting compassionate humanism into action through community service.
On an otherwise nondescript Saturday morning in April, a text from Kathy Dobson (a fairly new friend and community partner) lit up my phone detailing a need for several families near Ft. Meade, Florida who have been experiencing difficulty in the wake of COVID-19. These families desperately needed food, cleaning supplies, and more, and for one reason or another slipped through the cracks of the established safety net and support services. “They need like 30 bottles of laundry detergent now,” she said. “What do you think about us asking other similar organizations to go in on this together and help these folks?”By Sarah Ray, Co-Founder and Director of Atheists of Polk County
