SUPPORT RELIGIOUS HUMANISM
Donating through PayPal is convenient, and donating by check is best for larger donations (PayPal is free for you to donate, but charges us a fee for each transaction. A check allows all your support to go directly to the nonprofit). The best way to support us is with a monthly donation or larger one time contribution.
By donating to the Olam Institute, you will help improve the world through Religious Humanism. The Olam Institute is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt religious non-profit, so all your donations are fully tax deductible.
Our primary funding goal is to continue to commission proofs of concept, which will seed further donations and even grant applications (The competitive $100k Buckminster Fuller challenge is my current target).
These proofs of concept will include:
- Cathedral art of Humanist Saints
- An image of the Lifeist Pantheon and Demonarchy
- Designs for Life, Earth, and Geek Cathedrals
- Sections of the Geek, Earth, and Life Bibles
Your contributions also enable me to prepare and begin the Humanist Home Evening podcast in January 2017.
I invite you to go to the forums and submit your thoughts and designs. In the meantime, I will pay professionals to help the rest of us see the vision of Religious Humanism.
I am transitioning to focusing all my efforts on Religious Humanism. Your support during this pivotal time will allow us to build up a movement that will continue to do sustainable good in the world.
