Atheist Nexus 3.0
For the past seven years, Atheist Nexus has been the world's largest coalition of nontheists and nontheist organizations.
At this moment we have more than 32,000 members and 1100 specialized groups. On top of that, Nexus is the proud sponsor of a very active 13,000+ member Facebook group. Despite these great numbers, the vast majority of activity on our site comes from the tens of thousands of individuals who visit regularly to read articles and to acquire knowledge about nontheism. However, for whatever reason, these individuals have not decided to join. This is more than understandable based on the perils many would face by doing so.
I continually receive emails from those who tell me that Nexus helped them build the courage to “come out” as nonbelievers to their friends and family. Likewise, I hear from multiple individuals who feel all alone in their local area, and that Nexus has provided them with a sense of community.
All of this being said, there has been several times when I have had to reach into my own pocket to cover our expenses, and this is something that I can no longer do.
We have been able to keep our expenses quite low, and we have never had any paid staff. Nonetheless, because we do not actively request funding, Nexus has not been able to keep up with much needed technological advances.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to catch up on past expenses, and to begin funding some massive site upgrades, and the money received will be allocated in that order.
Whether you are an active member of Nexus, only a Facebook contributor, or simply someone who wants to help out, any donation will be greatly appreciated.
