The Humanist Foundation: The Endowment Fund of the American Humanist Association
The American Humanist Association is the oldest and largest organization dedicated to promoting Humanism in the United States. The Humanist Foundation, founded in 1980, serves as the endowment fund of the AHA and offers members exceptional opportunities to ensure the advancement of Humanism’s life-affirming message to countless future generations.
Gifts made specifically to The Humanist Foundation support the AHA’s mission in perpetuity by aiming to retain and invest the principle of those funds indefinitely, while allowing for a portion of investment proceeds to support annual programs.
It is significant to note that The Humanist Foundation has seen its assets climb to over ten million dollars. This effort is the culmination of a dream among AHA members, who have been providing for the future of Humanism through their wills, trusts, life insurance plans, and gift annuities since the AHA was founded in 1941. A number of these options enable the giver to enjoy a secure life income while benefiting the AHA in future years.
