Creating communities for non-religious South Floridians since 2004
A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
FLASH's success has not been a one person job. There's no way I could have done any of this without you, the membership. I relied heavily on volunteers and the organization will continue to need your support now and in the future. While at American Atheists, I worked with Directors and affiliates around the country. I think I have learned what members want for their membership dollars. What makes volunteers step up. And how to ask for money. For a non-profit to grow and serve more people it takes money. Quite frankly, a lot more than memberships alone. We also need major donors. If you, or anyone you know, can make a large donation to They look for organization, FLASH is a registered non-profit and a 501(c)3. They look for past accomplishments, we're OK there.
So, here is where FLASH needs your help. First, join FLASH as a paying member or even better a monthly supporter. Please go to the Join FLASH page now and join.
... OK, now that you're a member of FLASH, what else can you do? Volunteer to help as a committee member. The following committees always need more help:
Community organizer, co-organizer Maintains the community meet-up page, welcomes new members, secure venues for lectures, organize events specific to that FLASH community and maintain communication and work with the Board.
Darwin/Sagan educational day committee this committee plans, organizes and executes the running of our public education events.
Solstice Picnic/party committee annual FLASH events specifically designed to bring the communities together. Will need to organize and divide needs from each community to contribute. This committee could also help organize other family friendly events.
Community Service- participate in our quarterly road clean up, food drives, helping the homeless and other humanitarian causes
Activism- need volunteers to organize protest when needed, write LTEs, tabling events. And general help with other FLASH events.
Communication- Write content for newsletters, website update brochures and handouts.
and of course,
Donors - If you are wealthy or know someone who can make a large donation, talk to them.
With the direction of the Board of Directors, and the help of members and volunteers, we will continue to promote atheism in South Florida in a very positive light. And we can have fun doing it.
