The mission of the Center for Inquiry is to foster a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.

CFI - I Support Science, Reason, and Freedom of Inquiry We are only able to do as much as we do because of the generous contributions of individuals like you—we receive no government, and very little corporate support. Our supporters are real people who want their government unfettered by religion, who want harmful superstitions dispelled, who want nonbelievers and religious dissenters around the world to be free from persecution, who want reason and science to overcome the burdens placed on our civilization by faith and dogma.

To continue to work toward these goals, we need your support. If you agree with us that an embrace of science, reason, and the values of secular humanism can help make this a better world for everyone, then take actionmake a donation and join us so we can continue our vital work to make our shared goals real.
