As a financial supporter of American Atheists, you are a valued partner and have very specific rights and privileges, including those we have outlined below. We invite you to ask questions, make suggestions, and be an active participant in this relationship.

  1. You have the right to be informed about our mission and vision, our values, and the way we use contributions. Financial reports are posted on our website and are also available upon request.
  2. We want you to hold us accountable. You have the right to expect our staff and board of directors will act fairly, prudently, and without conflicts of interest.
  3. We pledge that your gifts will be used in accordance with the purpose(s) for which they were given.
  4. You have the right to control your personal information. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise exchange your personal information and will only share your information with partners with your express permission.
  5. You have the right to expect that we will keep your financial information safe and secure.
  6. You have the right to be removed from mail, email, and call lists. You can request this at any time by contacting us at [email protected].
  7. Our staff, board, and volunteers are bound to a comprehensive code of conduct — as is everyone who attends our events. We take all concerns raised to us seriously and will act promptly to address them.
  8. We are committed to destigmatizing atheism. At the same time, we are sensitive to the fact that some of our members live or work in places where they are still unable to be open about their nonbelief. In those cases, we make every effort to maintain your confidentiality.
  9. Trusts, bequests, and other planned gifts are special donations that require a heightened level of care. We will respect your decisions, including your decision to change the way you support our work — or even to stop supporting our work. We will always strive to make you proud of your past and future support of our work.
  10. You have the right to ask questions and provide feedback and receive a prompt, constructive, and courteous response.
