The vision of The National Alliance of Secular Homeschoolers (N.A.S.H.) is to advance the recognition of secular education in the homeschooling community and to support, academically, secular homeschoolers. Through the activities and involvement of N.A.S.H. at the national, state, and local levels, secular homeschoolers will have a stronger, significantly influential voice in the world of homeschooling and will have real life support for their homeschooling journey. The mission of N.A.S.H. is to create an alliance that develops and uses its social and political presence to support secular homeschoolers, educate society, and to have a positive impact on homeschooling as it effects and reflects secular homeschooling. In order to fulfill its primary mission, N.A.S.H. will focus on bringing programs, resources, ad support to secular homeschoolers. a greater awareness to secular homeschooling, and the needs of secular homeschoolers by promoting secularism in home school education and raising public awareness of secular homeschooling.
The short-term, most time-sensitive goal of N.A.S.H. is to have a successful conference where secular homeschoolers gather to share their ideas and offer their input for what they want and need from a secular homeschooling alliance. The Board of Directors will be selected and then N.A.S.H. will begin the work required to incorporate, seek 501(c) status, develop membership benefits and outreach programs, and establish media and marketing strategies. The conference is also offering homeschooling workshops, children activities as well as featuring secular exhibitors.
Our long term goal is to use the input we receive from the Board of Directors meeting and any monies from the GoFundMe campaign to formally incorporate The National Alliance of Secular Homeschoolers as a 501(c) non-profit organization, retain the necessary legal and financial services required, and begin the work of N.A.S.H.
These goals require funding and we need your help!
Any amount you can give will help form the Alliance and is deeply appreciated.

How Your Gift Will Be Used
Money gifted to this GoFundMe campaign will be invested in funding the 1st Inaugural N.A.S.H. conference as well as funding the establishment of N.A.S.H. as a 501(c), non-profit organization.
Any funds remaining after the cost of the conference will first go directly to the expenses incurred from creating and filing as a 501(c) non-profit organization. These costs include, but are not limited to, incorporation fees, legal counsel, accounting, and administrative costs. We need your help.
