Charitable Donations

“How can the man who, while worshipping Zeus the God of Companions, sees his neighbors in need and does not give them a dime – how can he think he is worshipping Zeus properly?” – Emperor Julian, Letter to a Priest

Since it’s creation, Bibliotheca Alexandrina — the publishing arm of Neos Alexandria — has made charitable contributions in the form of financial support and free copies of our texts to a number of worthy causes. These charities were suggested and voted upon by members of Neos Alexandria. Inclusion on this page is not to be construed as acceptance of these groups and their aims and methods by all of our members. We are a diverse community whose members express a wide variety of political and social opinions. One organization that we all have no qualms about supporting is the Polytheist Charity, a group devoted to exploring the intersections between our religious and charitable lives. If you would like to suggest a charitable cause, please contact the webmaster at baeditor@gmail.com.
