FFRF in Reddit’s top 10, to receive $83K

FFRF was chosen from more than 8,000 charities to be in Reddit’s top 10 and receive an $82,766 donation. Reddit, a social networking and news website, decided to donate 10% of its 2014 gross ad revenue to 10 charities selected by users. Over 80,000 users voted.
Reddit partnered with Charity Navigator, a nonprofit that evaluates charities, to vet potential awardees. (Charity Navigator rates FFRF an “exceptional” 97.06 out of 100 with four out of four stars.)

Others in the top 10 receiving a similar donation were the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Doctors Without Borders USA, Erowid Center, Wikimedia Foundation, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, National Public Radio, Free Software Foundation and Tor Project Inc.

“We’re so pleased to be in such illustrious company,” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “FFRF strives to do for the secular movement what charities like Planned Parenthood, Doctors Without Borders and NPR do for their respective fields. We’re honored that Redditors recognize our contribution.”

“The Internet is one of the few places some atheists feel comfortable being open about their atheism,” said Co-President Dan Barker. “This award is an honor, but also a symbol that secularism is gaining strength and acceptance wherever ideas can be freely exchanged.”
