We get asked how can someone support Humanism in Toledo and Northwest Ohio? The Secular Humanists of Western Lake Erie programming and operation is funded by membership fees, donations, and grants. There are many ways you can support our work.
- Join our group – obviously the best way is to join our group if you agree with our principles and believe Humanism is a life stance you can support.
- Donate – we would never turn down a donation. We can use cash to further our programming and pay for the general operation of the group. You can donate once or set up a monthly subscription. We use PayPal but you don’t need to have a PayPal account to donate to us.
- Give through your place of employment – many businesses have charity giving as part of a benefit package. You donate an amount and in most cases your employer will match it. SHoWLE is part of the Fidelity Giving Marketplace for those who have that option.
- Use your Kroger Plus Card – if you shop at Kroger, you can enroll our group on your Plus card and Kroger will donate a small percentage of your total spending to us. Go to the Kroger Community Rewards page, sign in, and enroll us using our group number – XC299 – or search on our full group name. Click here for more help. If you need a Kroger Plus card, they are at the Customer Service Desk.
- Amazon Smile Program – We are signed up through the Amazon Smile program. Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total eligible purchases to SHoWLE. We also have a Charity List of items we could use if you want to donate actual items.
- Create a fundraiser on Facebook – If you use Facebook, you can create a fundraiser to benefit SHoWLE to mark your birthday or other milestone. 100% of the money donated comes to SHoWLE.
You can always donate at one of our meetings or events or send a check or money order to:
