Donate NowThe Free Exercise Clause safeguards the freedom to engage in a chosen form of religion. Again, practices in the public schools have produced a host of litigation on this clause of the First Amendment. Parents with strong religious convictions have brought numerous suits alleging that a part of the science, health, or reading curriculum included content that was contrary to the family's religious convictions and values, thus restricting the family's right to engage in its chosen religion.

Some reasons to give this donation thing a go…
Giving Makes us Happier.
Research has shown that spending money on ourselves does not significantly increase our sense of happiness or wellbeing. A Harvard Business School study suggests that giving to others is directly correlated with an increased sense of happiness. The Harvard researchers write: “Happier people give more and giving makes people happier, such that happiness and giving may operate in a positive feedback loop.”
This Will Happen.
You are actively increasing the humanist and secular values in our country and promoting reason and critical thinking when making important decisions that affect others. By strengthening the atheist, humanist and church-state separation movement, you will increase the awareness that needs to be brought to moderates and fence-sitters. 100% of your donation will be used for our secular community.
A Sense of Purpose.
While it may seem that a small donation won’t make a big difference, even small gifts can have a significant impact. Giving to this community helps you participate in a cause you feel strongly about. Even if you don’t have the time to volunteer, charitable gifts go a long way in helping organisations operate and impact those they help.
