Secular Students Are Counting on YOU


The Atheists, Agnostics and Freethinkers of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign earned the SSA Best Service Project Award for partnering with the Campus Crusade for Christ to repair homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

Please consider a generous financial gift to the Secular Student Alliance. As 2008 draws to a close, the SSA -- like many non-profits -- is experiencing a significant downturn in contributions from our supporters. As an independent organization, we rely entirely on donations from atheists, agnostics, humanists, and others who want to safeguard the future of secularism. You are a critical part of that future.
