Minnesota Atheists is currently exploring options for the purchase of a permanent home for our organization. We are accepting donations to the Ted Moore Building fund, named as a memorial to a member who was an active and enthusiastic supporter of our efforts to buy a permanent MNA site.
The 300 Club was established by Minnesota Atheists at the suggestion of member Rod Monroe. Our oal is to get 300 people to pledge to give us $1,000 each over a four-year period (an amount that averages $5 per week per donor) to raise a total of $300,000 for our Building Fund.
The following people have joined the 300 Club so far. We will continue to publish this list as it grows. Numbers in parentheses indicate multiples of $1,000. When at least $1,000 of the pledge has been paid, the person's name will be displayed in boldface. We have recently changed responsibility for tracking this information. If we missed your name, or do not have your information correct, or to join the 300 Club, please contact me, Steve Petersen, at (651) 484-9277 or email@example.com.

We seek to purchase a permanent home so that we can hold events and host speakers for the benefit of our membership and for the larger community. Board members are the largest contributors to the Ted Moore Building Fund. Those who do not live in Minnesota are also asked to be involved by contributing to this fund.
Our website is one of the best sources for up-to-date news on separation of church/state issues, and it's available to everyone all over the world. Likewise, our newsletter is available online at no cost. Minnesota Atheists sees itself as part of a larger atheist movement to counter religious fanaticism and sectarian strife with reasoned communication and education. Recent events, especially in the Middle East, highlight the importance of timeless, universal human values, especially scientific research, critical thinking, and freedom from oppression. We extend our invitation to people all over the world to join and to contribute. Donate today—for the survival of humanity.
