We welcome donations of any amount to NOSHA! Your donation will help us cover costs such as:

  • Basic operating costs – meeting facilities and supplies, website maintenance and security, fees for banking and mailing, etc.
  • Speakers – We aspire to occasionally bring in speakers of note for whom we need honoraria and expenses, including hotel, food and flights to New Orleans.
  • Advertising – publicizing NOSHA events in local media, and promoting NOSHA as an organization with ads on street cars, billboards and other possible media outlets.
  • Philanthropy and Community Service – At NOSHA, we put compassionate humanism into action through a variety of community service projects and charitable fundraising. NOSHA also partners with the Foundation Beyond Belief, as part of their Beyond Belief Network of secular groups.
