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.

As a retired head of a comprehensive school, I am very concerned at the growth of so-called 'faith schools'. I very strongly believe they are dangerous, divisive and a threat to our open society.Andrew, London
The General Principles of the NSS very accurately represent my outlook. Religious beliefs are valid and appropriate when held and practised privately, but if you use your beliefs to justify your actions, you must be prepared to justify your beliefs.Anon
"Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis I have been thinking about my legacy and end of life issues. Assisted suicide is currently illegal in the UK, a policy which suffers from strong religious lobbying. Legislating against the wishes of a mentally competent person seems barbaric."Alison, Aberdeen
I think all groups, religious, atheistic or agnostic, have enough common ground to be able to live together in harmony under secular systems of governance, law, welfare, education, etc.Paula, Coalville
I discovered the NSS while studying Politics at school, researching pressure groups. I was particularly interested in secularism, always held similar beliefs, and decided to join to promote the cause of religious freedom and equality.Edward, Wiltshire
