How about the following...

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is the bulldog watch group protecting the wall of separation between church and state.
www.ffrf.org

This is the political lobbying group in DC who lobbies for legislation that does not support religions.
http://www.secular.org/

The future of America are our children, this supports freethinking kids on college campuses across America (in contrast to the campus christian crusade crap).
http://www.secularstudents.org/

Faith is nice but doubt will get you an education!

Spurred by the horrific suffering in Haiti, the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (RDFRS) has joined forces with 13 other freethought groups or associates, to collect donations to non-religious relief organizations. Those participating are Atheist Alliance International, Atheists Helping the Homeless, Atheists United, The British Humanist Association, James Randi Educational Foundation, Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, New Humanist magazine, Pharyngula, Rationalist Association, Reasonable New York, The Reason Project, The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, The Skeptics Society and Unreasonable Faith.

You're free to donate this way of course, but why not simply donate directly to the two organizations that will ultimately receive this money: the International Red Cross and Doctors without Borders?
I stopped believing for a little while this morning. Journey is gonna be so pissed when they find out...

I'm happy to report on the recent launch of the Foundation Beyond Belief, a meta-charity helping atheists and freethinkers to do good (and I love that logo!). The Foundation was the brainchild of Dale McGowan, the secular parenting author whom I've interviewed before. There are some other familiar faces on the board of directors as well, including fellow blogger Hemant Mehta of Friendly Atheist.

This is basically the "5 Dollar Club" seen through to its completion. Take a look!
God's existence is contingent upon the illusion that morality is dictated by religious authority.

xphobe, can I suggest Amnesty International?

If you're going to have people like the ACLU, it makes sense to have AI as well, I think...

Gnu.

I've donated to ShelterBox
http://www.shelterbox.org/

They just fill, then transport durable boxes with tents, utensils, tools, etc., customized to the local needs. 

No bibles.

No social commentary.

Just practical, useful equipment, sent to where it's needed.
