Charitable Entities & Advocacy Groups

Worthy of Secular Progressive Support


We are living through a time in which authoritarian tendencies are on the rise in government. As Secular Progressives, we recognize that big money is on side of our political opponents. Yet, we are compelled to resist these authoritarian and oligarchical trends and trust that the cause of democracy is a just one. One way in which the power of the people can eventually bring about a more just and equitable society is for us to brandish our checkbooks and contribute to the causes that matter to us. As individuals, our contributions may seem modest. But together we can make a significant impact.


Below you will find a list of political concerns that are important to progressives, as well as philosophical concerns that carry weight for secularists. I encourage you to browse through the lists. Hopefully, you will find several charitable entities and advocacy groups that interest you personally that you feel are deserving of your support. Just click on the links, investigate them, and consider what you are willing to do. I actually find it enjoyable! -- Gary M. Linscott


P.S.  Every penny you contribute will go directly to the entity you decide to support. Nothing accrues to the benefit of this website.
