Free Thought Forum



Your Support Matters

Show your dedication to free-thinking! Your contributions allow new Free Thought Forums to emerge, provide more services, and grow! Scroll down to see all the available donation options, Thank-You gifts, and our progress toward our current fundraising goal.

Where Does the Money Go?

At this stage in our development, 100% of the funds raised by our organization (minus Paypal, Venmo, or Stripe processing fees) are being used to meet the legal fees associated with filing for our nonprofit status (required for our first three years of operation). Any future changes to this arrangement will be announced ahead of time in our newsletter.



Options and Thank You Gifts

Contributions such as yours make it all possible! By supporting our cause and our services, you will be eligible to receive the following rewards and thank you gifts according to the donation tiers specified below. Thank you!

About Monthly Donations: Subsequent monthly payments will be charged approximately at the same time-of-month as your first payment. Links to new digital rewards will be sent to your email address. Past digital rewards may be accessed via our Donor Portal. Physical rewards will be sent to the mailing address you provide beginning one month after each scheduled donation. You have the option to opt-out of receiving any and all of the rewards listed below.


Volunteer, Participate in Meetings, and Provide Feedback

Not every freethinker is in the position to donate funds. However, not all meaningful donations can be counted in dollars and cents! To everyone donating their time, volunteer hours, insights and perspectives at our meetings, and helpful feedback online, we are happy to offer the following thank-you gifts:


Send a One-Time Donation

(To send aid in response to a recent crisis, please visit our disaster-relief page.)

  • Personal Note: Receive (via email) at least one unique Thank you Letter, written for you and signed by the members of our Executive Board.

Our Goal


Operation Lift Off

All groups under the Free Thought Initiative and our podcast team are all fundraising for our first $1000! This is to help us get off the ground as an official Non Profit (the official paperwork costs $750) while also being able to reserve a booth at local tabling events and produce printed materials such as business cards and pamphlets in the future!
