In January of 2016, Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) reached the culmination of multiple years of planning and preparation by much of our staff and some volunteers. We had finally achieved something that no one had done before - the first deployment of a national Humanist Disaster Recovery (HDR) Team. Our South Carolina team worked for seven days in the city of Columbia, rebuilding homes after flooding caused by Hurricane Joaquin in late 2015. Under the guidance of our partner, St. Bernard Project, we trained, demolished the interior of a home, performed mold remediation, hung drywall, mudded, sanded, and primed homes in the area. The deployment, which took place from January 2 to January 9, 2016, was, in the words of Rebecca Vitsmun, the HDR Teams Development Coordinator, "An absolute success!"(more…) By FBB

Foundation Beyond Belief ran a total of four Humanist Disaster Recovery Drives in 2016.
In quarter two, we launched a drive to raise funds in the wake of the Ecuadorian earthquake. Thanks to your generous support, we were able to provide a grant of $13,045 to Aquality (formerly Water Ecuador), representing 100% of the funds raised by FBB. Aquality raised additional funds for a total of $24,500 in support of earthquake relief and recovery.By FBB
