Also if you are a member of Chase banks, you get two additional votes. You'll have to log in to Chase to get the votes.

The Interfaith Youth Core, one of our partners, is hosting their 10th annual Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California Oct. 28th-31st. This should be of interest to the students in that area as atheists are an important part of interfaith dialogue. If you need financial assistance, you may appy for a project grant to help with the expenses of travel. Registration is $50 off until Sept 12th. Register here for the institute!
Interfaith Leadership Institutes (ILIs) are four-day intensives that equip students and their campus allies, inclusive of staff, faculty, and administrators, to be movement builders for interfaith action.
The Foundation Beyond Belief team has raised more than $125,000 toward the million dollar goal by the end of the year towards Light the Night. Secular students like you and others all over the country are helping us in this effort!
In celebration of the great work that has been done and in order to encourage even more: Foundation Beyond Belief, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Stiefel Freethought Foundation are doing something special for the walks through September 9th to the 15th (Light the Night Walk Kickoff Week). More free stuff! Help the FBB team raise money and you'll have the opportunity to win prizes courtesy of the LLS!
In addition to all this great swag, don't forget Stiefel Freethought Foundation's ongoing incentives for all of our teams: The top fundraising teams overall will have the opportunity to direct up to $5,000 in grants!
