To keep our attention focused and maximize our effectiveness, Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) selects a limited number of disaster events to feature in a Humanist Disaster Recovery (HDR) Drive. The expressed support of the freethought community is a major factor in our decision process. After a major disaster strikes, use this form to let FBB know that you think a response is appropriate. If we do not mount a full drive, we may feature a secular disaster recovery organization on this page.
Thank you for your assistance in this process.
We at FBB recognize the severity of the fires that have affected the people of California and the serious need for assistance for the affected communities. Although we would like to vet a responsible secular organization and hold a fundraising campaign to support recovery efforts, we cannot. We are small organization made up entirely of part-time staff members and at this time we are stretched beyond capacity.
Our hearts go out to the people in California who have been impacted by this natural disaster. We hope that humanists and other non-believers who want to help with recovery will donate to responsible, effective, local organizations.
