I am looking for a 100% secular humanist charity to sponsor through my company. Any ideas?

Not exactly secular humanist, but inclusive. And a great way to give money to charity which will both benefit the community and your company. Also, great networking, from what I hear, so it can help you expand your business.

I happen to be on the board of Activist San Diego: which is an umbrella organization. You can even create your own cause, or specify money to be used in a specific way., and ASD will set up 'fiscal sponsorship' to do the books under our 501(c)(3) license.

I also work with Grant Writing Specialists. There are many ways to do what you are trying to do, it all depends on how deep you want to go, and how you want to set it up.

I like your strategy. Can you give me more info?

If I have a project in mind, can i get people to donate to your organization earmarked for this project?

That is affirmative. We are actually providing such a service for Occupy SD, and they don't have any leaders, no bank account, nothing.

If I were you, I'd start by writing down your goals, and planning how to achieve them. Just remember that 501(c)(3) is a public charity, and although tax-deductible, you can not contribute too much to political campaigns or party politics. ASD's mission is very broad: "Networking for Social Justice", so it allows us great flexibility,

If you want to 'discriminate' against all religious groups (which happen to have their own 501 tax-deductible charities) and still be a tax-deductible organization, this is one easy way to get it done.

If you start your own non-profit, it costs from $800 and up, and you have to get IRS approval of your charitable mission, file all the paperwork with the state, and keep it up to date, with a board of directors, officers, etc.

Once you have something in writing send me a copy: mike-at-lifeguardadventures.com
Cheers.
