As August told you on Monday, we just launched our $15 for ‘15 campaign, and are encouraging people to give $15 a month throughout 2015 to make it the best year ever for secular students!
Our volunteers, students, staff members, and Board Members are sharing their stories about what they are excited about, and I wanted to share some quotes from these stories.
Nancy Martin, Chair of the SSA Board of Directors: “While there are many exciting activities and programs within SSA, a new program has me beaming with pride to be part of this organization. That program is our scholarship program. Our initial grants have plenty of room to grow, and I can see a future where we can offer full-tuition scholarships thanks to generous supporters!”
Northwestern Oklahoma State University Secular Student Alliance: “We want to show the religious individuals both on campus and around the community that even without religion, one can lead a moral life and help to improve the world for all. A huge thank you to the donors and supporters of the SSA! We wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for your help!"
Fred Edwords, National Director of the United Coalition of Reason and member of the SSA’s Speakers Bureau: “Because of the SSA's expanding support of affiliate groups this year and its energetic lauding of those with standout activities, I see 2015 as a bumper year for developing new creativity on campus and thereby bringing it to the work of all the secular organizations across the country.”
There are many more stories from people passionate about the SSA: you can read them here, and we will be adding more all the time.
