SFF has given $50,000 to the American Humanist Association for funding a grant writer. This is the first time the secular movement will be writing grant applications on a large scale to mainstream foundations and charities. Grant applications will be sent out on behalf of AHA, The Humanist Institute, and The Institute for Humanist Studies.
