Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

The American Humanist Association's increasing membership, access to elected leaders, wins in the courtroom, and number of media hits for humanism are a result of our long-term strategy to bring humanism to all aspects of activism and life. It is clear through national polls that our work, particularly in highlighting many of the intolerant beliefs of traditional religion, has resulted in an increase in the number of atheists and agnostics in the United States, and the number of religiously unaffiliated Americans is growing at an even faster pace. In addition, our legislative advocacy, legal cases, and local group support all work together to benefit the secular movement.
