Religious Freedom & Business Foundation
The Foundation is a non-partisan charitable organization working with business people, academics, government officials and community leaders from multiple faiths (or of none) to accomplish its mission. The Foundation is a registered corporation and is applying for IRS recognition as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in the USA. Businesses are uniquely situated to solve problems caused by religious restrictions and hostilities because they are at the crossroads of culture, commerce and creativity. Indeed, they have a vested interest because religious freedom is good for business. Research shows that religious freedom not only benefits the bottom line, but also improves the lives of women, consolidates democracy, and increases peace and stability. The Problem A rising tide of religious restrictions and hostilities has swept the globe in the past decade, despite efforts by governments, religious groups and non-governmental organizations to roll them back. The Solution Business support for religious freedom will result in more peaceful, trustworthy and stable economies. Where there is stability, there is more opportunity to invest, especially in emerging/new markets. It also fosters more trust within a company and enlarges public trust toward a company, enhancing its brand image and benefiting the bottom line.
