Q2 2015 results reveal the power of large grants


Foundation Beyond Belief is pleased to announce the grant results for Q2 2015. In the Humanist Giving Program, we funded our second Compassionate Impact Grant to Starfish.  Starfish strives to mentor native Mayan girls in Guatemala and help them achieve the “infinite impact” for themselves, their families, and their community. Our grant of $50,000 enabled Starfish to provide intensive training to teachers in best practice education models as Starfish opens their academically rigorous middle school this fall.

To help connect young people to Starfish’s mission and programs we created a guide for them to learn for themselves.

Starfish_2012_KL-029 Following a 7.8 earthquake in Nepal, Foundation Beyond Belief launched a Humanist Disaster Recovery Drive to raise money for those impacted. Society for Humanism (SOCH) Nepal received $5000 in their efforts to provide tents and food to the communities of Kavrepalanchowk, Nuwakot, Gorkha, and Dhaging.


The bulk of donations were sent to our beneficiary Women’s Foundation of Nepal. Research has show that women are disproportionately impacted by disaster. Women’s Foundation works in non-disaster times to provide education, training, and shelter to women throughout Nepal. In the aftermath of the earthquake they have been distributing aid all over Nepal, accessing cut off villages by foot and helicopter, and opened a shelter specifically for pregnant women and new mothers. Thanks to your incredible response to this Disaster Recovery Drive, Women’s Foundation of Nepal received $40,200 during Quarter 2.

The constant and regular support from our monthly giving members of the Humanist Giving Programs and our Humanist Disaster Recovery Drive donors enables us to deliver important grants and funds to meaningful programs totaling over $95,000.
