1791 DELEGΛTES proudly manages The Foundation for Religious Literacy, led by philanthropist H. Bruce McEver. We began by designing the charity’s strategic plan, and then we were invited to implement it. As its development officers, we oversee the quarterly fundraising initiatives for the public charity, growing its philanthropic network. As its civic educators, we develop curricula and public programs to advance the field of religious literacy. Our operational work consists of managing the foundation’s assets and grant programs, as well as overseeing its communications, as illustrated at www.TFRL.org.
To help educators respond to the pandemic, 1791 DELEGΛTES is developing ReligionAndPublicLife.org in partnership with The Foundation for Religious Literacy. This social learning community offers over seventy learning modules to advance the civic competencies of religious literacy and legal literacy. The interdisciplinary curriculum showcases contemporary issues about religion and public life illuminated by the following disciplines: law, history, media, politics, arts, diplomacy, race, human rights, and science.
Curriculum development for national “public leaders for inclusion.” This semester-long course serves public servants working in local governments to promote religious literacy in their communities.
