More about Faith Counts
Faith Counts is a multi-faith organization with a simple mission—to promote the value of faith. Millions of Americans of every religion are motivated by their faith to go and serve the most vulnerable among us. Their good works can be seen in soup kitchens, hospitals, schools, homeless shelters and many other humanitarian causes. The centerpiece of Faith Counts is a collaborative social media effort that tells powerful stories about how faith counts—how it inspires, empowers, motivates and comforts billions of people around the world.
The initiative came about as the leadership of several major religious groups recognized a need to encourage faith, and an opportunity to harness their collective influence to simply to remind people from all walks of life that faith plays a positive role in society. Official partners of Faith Counts represent diverse faith communities including: Sikh American Legal Defense Fund, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Hillel International, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the 1st Amendment Partnership, and Franciscan University of Steubenville. All faith groups are welcome.
