GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The trustees of the National Organization of American Humanities wish your participation and investment to join with NOAH in our missions of assistance.
The National Organization for American Humanities, as an accountable American and World entity, has accepted the challenge of the responsibility to support those individuals, organizations and activities which directly benefit society. NOAH’s primary goal is to support any worthwhile project, providing that the request has a net benefit to humankind, which in turn contributes to the enhancement of our global community.
Our planet has been abused for centuries by man and our planet desperately needs all of our combined assistance to repair the ecological damages inflicted on our fragile planet. In addition to the direct damages caused by mankind, in 1998 over 82 billion dollars of debilitating losses were experienced through out the world from indirectly caused weather related damages. These storms and calamities of nature have caused thousands of deaths and have destroyed whole communities. There isn’t enough government assistance to resolve all the misery and pain in this world. There are now over one billion people on this earth that are illiterate. The failure to educate hundreds of millions of children poses a threat not only to their lives, to world peace, but also to world survival.
NOAH is dedicated to assisting those in need where and whenever possible. It takes a team.
The National Organization for American Humanities (NOAH), formed in October of 1997, was created as an American Renaissance Coalition. NOAH was formed as an accountable non-profit Foundation, and is challenged with the responsibility to support those individuals, organizations and activities which directly benefit society. NOAH’s primary goal is to support any worthwhile project, providing that the request has a net benefit to humankind, which in turn contributes to the enhancement of our global community.
The philosophy of the National Organization for American Humanities is to positively impact the world wide community by supporting the development of new ideas, products and technologies for the collective good to all mankind.
NOAH subscribes to the belief that finding alternative answers for many of society’s needs is of paramount importance. Funding these objectives will impact our social system in a positive way for generations to come. NOAH is organized for the permanent administration of funds placed in trust by various donors for research, development, education and humanitarian purposes. Assistance is available to any organization exploring new technologies today, for a better tomorrow.
The activities of the National Organization for American Humanities support three general principles:
- Empowerment to develop independence,
- Educate and equip people to help themselves and to serve others, inclusiveness, to expand opportunity for those who lack it, and
- Community (to build and sustain quality in our common life).
The foundation has seven funding priorities:
1. Youth and Education,
2. Equity and Justice,
3. Community Development,
5. Public Policy,
6. Research and Development of Health Solutions and
7. New Technologies.
Within each priority, the Foundation has identified several areas of concentration.
Within the youth and education program, the foundation looks for ways to eliminate barriers to the healthy development of young people, encourages organizations serving youth in creative ways, and supports efforts to improve elementary and secondary schooling, including key institutions with which NOAH has close ties.
In equity and justice, NOAH focuses on those who face discrimination, are dispossessed, or are poorly served by society and the judicial system. NOAH is especially resolved to serve the elderly, the disabled, victims of domestic violence and children at risk. NOAH looks for organizations that respond creatively and vigorously to meet those needs; groups engaging in constructive public advocacy and working to ensure the protection of civil rights for all humankind, regardless of age, gender, race or ethnic origin.
The community development program looks to enhance and protect the general environment. In community development, the Foundation supports projects that encourage an enhanced quality of life for the entire community. The public policy program provides a vehicle to make general support grants to national organizations working to strengthen the debate on key issues facing society.
