Humanist Giving Program celebrates strong second quarter

09 Jul

q22012In the second quarter of 2012, the compassionate humanist members of Foundation Beyond Belief donated a total of $42,310 to our featured charities. As always, each of the five featured organizations inspired strong member support during the quarter. But for the first time since our launch, Poverty & Health claimed the highest level of member support, followed by perpetual member favorites Human Rights and Education.

We are also proud to introduce the first recipient of our new Small Grant Awards program — the groundbreaking Igwe Witchcraft Accusation Field Study in Northern Ghana. Led by prominent Nigerian humanist Leo Igwe, this unique research program will focus on women currently held against their will in several “witch camps” after being accused of witchcraft and expelled from their villages.
