A donation to the National Secular Society will help us to promote freedom, fairness and individual rights. It will help us to continue campaigning, lobbying, speaking out and challenging unfair laws and practices in Britain and abroad.
We receive no funding from government or outside bodies – our work is wholly supported by our members, people like you who share our belief in the urgent need for a public life free from religious concerns.
A direct debit is the most effective way to support the NSS – it allows us to predict how much money we will have available, and also cuts down on administration costs, enabling us to increase the scale of our activities.

The redacting of exam questions and the scandal of gender separation at British Universities convinced me to join the NSS, standing up for rationalism, and civilised behaviour, unafraid to stick its head above the parapet and expose hypocrites, religious zealots and apologistsJonathan said:
I was spurred on to join the NSS by the torrent of attacks on secularism by Baroness Warsi amongst many others, and by the Pope's poisonous and mendacious claim that Nazi Germany was the result of atheism.Michael, Scottish Borders said:
My motivations for joining include faith schools, bishops in the House of Lords, religious intolerance towards women and minorities, any situation where the pious are given more respect or airtime than others, and people holding discriminatory views on religious grounds remaining influential.Paul, Huddersfield said:
I feel proud my membership money will go towards future successes in the fight for a fair and secular future for all.Luke said:
I chose a non-denominational school for my son and yet he still has to take part in daily collective worship. A theatre group called "Open the Book" entertain his class once a week with Bible stories, in addition to an RE class. Religion should be taken out of schools altogether and more time spent on aspects of the curriculum relevant to adult life. Excluding him would however make him the odd-one-out.Nicolle, London said:
