Our mission is to support an underserved community of atheists, agnostics, and others who seek recovery from obsessive behavior around food and body image. Work on this site is entirely a volunteer effort; donations help support two Zoom room licenses, the podcast and website, and newcomer and sponsor packets (and associated mailing expenses). (At this time, donations are not tax deductible—we can’t afford the initial and annual fees to register as a nonprofit.) Your contribution, in any amount, will make a difference. Thank you!
When we switched banks in March 2022 we were unable to keep our former links. Please use this new information:
PayPal: @SOtradition7 or https://paypal.me/SOTradition7. If you have the option, be sure to indicate you’re sending money to a friend, not a business! (PayPal sometimes takes out or adds a small fee for businesses.)
Zelle: Check with your bank to see if you are set up to send money using Zelle (and consider making a small recurring monthly donation!). If so, use our email address for the recipient: SO.Tradition7@gmail.com
Going forward we will be posting a quarterly financial report here on approximately 1/1, 4/1, 7/1, and 10/1. The funds are overseen by two co-treasurers. Our prudent reserve is one year’s expenses, and as we fund new projects, we also increase the prudent reserve. (The current 2022 prudent reserve is $1,300 and is not reflected in the finances below, as this kitty is meant to be used in a dire emergency only!) You can view past reports here.
2021 Carry Forward: $1,108
2022 Projected Expenses: -$1,600 (3 Zoom Licenses, Website, Podcast, Newcomer and Sponsor Packets, Postage)
2022 Donations: $3094 (131 Contributions, ranging from $2 to $225)
2022 Balance: $2,602 (Available for new initiatives)
We’re looking for volunteers with a wide range of skills and interests to help us launch the Secular Overeaters movement! Use this form to let us know your interests, and we’ll get back to you soon.
You can also contribute in other ways. Help us find more secular recovery resources for this site to share through links, including published Overeaters Anonymous (OA) content like podcasts and newsletter stories—as well as “outside” content with atheist/agnostic/other voices or secular tools for recovery. And we always welcome your comments, suggestions, and personal shares (written or recorded).
Thank you for being of service!
