Foundation Beyond Belief (FBB) is a charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate generosity in the secular humanist community. FBB highlights five charitable organizations per quarter. Their 1,300+ members join by signing up for a monthly automatic donation in the amount of their choice, then set up personal profiles to indicate how they would like their contribution distributed among the featured causes.
Trees, Water & People was selected as a 2013 second quarter beneficiary in the “Natural World” category for our “unique approach to protecting our natural world.”
“Not only is the work Trees, Water, & People doing worthwhile, but the model they’ve put together is something that, if replicated, could result in more culturally competent programs throughout our world.”
Among other considerations, beneficiaries are chosen for efficiency, effectiveness, moderate size (annual budget under $10 million), compatibility with humanist focus on mutual care of this world and this life, and geographic diversity. All categories feature secular organizations with the exception of “Challenge the Gap,” which gives members the option of supporting one progressive, non-proselytizing religious organization each quarter.
Thank you to Foundation Beyond Belief! We are honored to be a Q2 beneficiary.
