Harvard Square Humanist Hub
$42,273 of $75k goal
The Humanist Community at Harvard is an organization with a mission: to build a strong community of atheists, agnostics, Humanists, and the nonreligious at Harvard University and beyond, and to do so by addressing the philosophical and pastoral needs and values of those who come to our events and those who share our resources worldwide.
After many years, we're finally ready to move into a space that will help us bring people together better than we ever have before. The space in Harvard Square that has the potential to be used for lectures, Sunday meetings, counseling, classrooms, interfaith service projects, events hosted by our partners at Boston area atheist/humanist groups, and more.
We've already raised more than $250,000 for rent, but now we need funding for construction and furnishing in order to build and create an atheist gathering place that focuses on what matters most to you.
The Humanist Community at Harvard is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and we are not funded by Harvard University. All of our funding comes from people like you who support our vision.

And if you've donated already: thank you! If you haven't donated, or you're still thinking about it, get in touch with us to talk about some of the things left on our wish list (we still need the kitchen sink!). Every piece of the Humanist Hub has been and will be built by you, our supporters!
But that's not all: our matching grant has been extended into August, so your donation is STILL worth double -- all the more reason to donate today!!
I believe in secular students, in their ability to organize for a better future, and in their increased willingness to do so if we actually have a kitchen for them to use for their community meetings.
I believe that a place where one i accepted, where people know you, where you can affirm your values and find support is invaluable to navigating and thriving in life.

I believe in this community center and this work!
