Non-Religious Charities

July 17, 2007

Recently some blogs, notably Uncertain Principles, have been listing and discussing charities that are non-religious.   For those of us that would rather give to a charity that does not pray, preach, evangelize, proselytize and etc. I have collected a short list of those that seem to be most popular.

I am sure that I have missed many more.  Feel free to comment with your own favorites.  Due to comment spam, comments will be moderated – meaning I will manually review each comment.

UPDATE January 2011
Recently I have become aware of the  Foundation Beyond Belief  whose mission is:
To demonstrate humanism at its best by supporting efforts to improve this world and this life and to challenge humanists to embody the highest principles of humanism, including mutual care and responsibility.”
I am impressed with their both their mission as well as their actions.  I encourage you to check them out for yourself at the link above.
