Creating a truly new humanist community effort has been so gratifying. But it also comes with expenses such as grant writing, publicity, web hosting, member communications, and professional accounting. Since we are committed to remaining a 100 percent pass-through organization, we rely on separate donations for our own operational costs. Because the current economy took a serious bite out of our major funding sources, we are left with an operating deficit for 2010.
Can you help us close that gap?
We have big plans for 2011, including tripling membership and donations, creating a disaster relief fund, and launching both a kids’ giving program and an initiative reaching out to other worldviews. It’s going to be an amazing year of active, compassionate humanism.
