The FOUNDATION
BEYOND BELIEF- Beyond Belief Network, an international organization of
non-believers has awarded our very own Executive Director Jennifer C.
Gutierrez
 as the HUMANIST INNOVATOR of the Year 2015 from their
Heart of Humanism contest that welcomed humanist innovators from all over the
world. 

On May 26, 2016, the
award was brought to the attention of a seemingly surprised and overwhelmed Jennifer’s
attention, 

“To be honest, I’m shy. Because I did all I could without forethought of or wanting an award. With or without it I will still be doing this. But I hope this inspires more people. It was really a surprise to me, I didn’t even know I was nominated or by whom I was nominated.”

Sadly, she has also informed us that she won’t be able to attend the upcoming reason rally on June 2-5 in Washington DC,USA to witness the recognition.

“A
big thank you for this honor, I dedicate this to the HAPI Core team which has
been an integral part of our ‘innovation’ and propelled movement”

 The Humanist Alliance Philippines, International is ever
committed to serving our fellow human beings towards a brighter, more open and
secular future where all are welcome and helping each other. Supported by the
Foundation Beyond Belief, HAPI is doing its best to make this dream a reality.

For those interested in the BBN awards, the winners of  Beyond Belief Network’s (BBN) Heart of Humanism awards will be awarded at Reason Rally on Sunday, June 5. The awards recognizes the outstanding community service of local groups who participated in the BBN program in 2015. 

The Mission of Foundation Beyond Belief

FBB’s mission is to demonstrate humanism at its best by supporting efforts to improve this world and this life, and to challenge humanists to embody the highest principles of humanism, including mutual care and responsibility.

Since our launch in 2010, our members and supporters have donated over $1.5 million to organizations working to improve the world.
We have funded education in Cambodia, Pakistan, Uganda, India, the United States, and nine countries in sub-Saharan Africa, improved access to health care for marginalized populations on four continents, and supported populations at risk after disasters both natural and human in their origins.
We’ve supported efforts to fight global warming and protect biodiversity. We’ve helped open a new school for girls in Pakistan and funded a four-year college scholarship for indigenous Guatemalans. We’ve added humanist voices and dollars to the fight for LGBT rights, empowered adoptions, helped feed the hungry, and worked to protect the most vulnerable – refugees in war, victims of torture, women under threat of violence, political asylees, people struggling with addiction, and those seeking dignity at the end of their lives.
Through our Challenge the Gap program, we seek the best expressions of non-secular worldviews and have funded effective, non-proselytizing charities based in all five major world religions.
Our Beyond Belief Network has put humanist compassion to work with over 30,000 volunteer hours in 60 cities across the US, from AIDS hospices and food pantries to blood drives and environmental protection projects. And we’ve raised over $900,000 to fight blood cancers through the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
There’s no supernatural power to make this world a better place. It’s up to us. Foundation Beyond Belief is humanity at work.
