Getting the Kansas City Atheist Coalition Off the Ground

There are a few states that would greatly benefit from a strong coalition of local atheists and Kansas Missouri is on that list.

A group of local leaders are trying to form what they’re calling the Kansas City Atheist Coalition, a non-profit group, but they first need to raise money for the filing fees and professional help to set up the 501(c)(3).

They plan to focus on Activism, Charity, Outreach — all things sorely needed in the state. There are several local groups in the area, but a coalition has far-reaching abilities that go beyond what any one group can do.

If you think their plan is worthwhile, you can make a donation here. (Your credit card won’t be charged until the target amount is reached.)

I’d love to see the group form and become a source for positive atheism. The sooner they can raise the money, the faster that’ll happen. They’re already raised about half of it!

  • Rich Samuels

    Finally, a red A I’d wear on a t-shirt.

  • Andrew!

    I’ll just say what the KC people are thinking: most of Kansas City is in Missouri, not Kansas. Too bad I don’t currently live there. Oh well.

  • ACN

    I third the opinion on the logo!

  • jenea

    They’ve got themselves a talented graphic artist. I for one look forward to seeing more artifacts coming out of that group.

    Mmmm, typography.

  • Wow, an Atheist logo without Papyrus font!

    …praise be!

  • Orson

    I live in a suburb on the west side of K.C. and I am glad to see someone starting this organization. When you live in this neck of the woods, you don’t dare say that you don’t go to church let alone that you are athiest.

  • Hemant: Thanks a bunch for the shout out! If you ever want some more publicity for something, let Adam or myself know so we can post it on AtheismResource & KCAC.

    Kansas City is on the border of Missouri and Kansas and KCAC will not be limited to one side of the border or the other. I know… it’s confusing. I’m on the Missouri side, some of our officers are on the KC side. We all get along fine. =)

    Also, thanks for the love for the logo, I take great pride in my work. <3

    I used to live in KC, MO. Oh, the memories…

    The logo, me like!

  • Sue

    Seems like it’s not possible to donate from outside the US/Canada/Australia? I’d like to send you a few of my godless British pounds!

  • Veronica Houghton

    Sue: We didn’t realize we’d have interested parties outside the KC area. That’s fantastic. If you can contact us at kcatheists[at]gmail.com, we’ll try to work something out.
