It is an honor to have the opportunity to collaborate with your organizations. We hope the following information will be helpful to you in publicizing our joint programs.
The Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute is a nonpartisan national initiative focused on educating the American public about the religious liberty principles of the First Amendment. We envision a world committed to religious freedom as an inalienable right for all people. In carrying out this vision, our mission is to educate the public about the history, meaning and significance of religious freedom and to promote dialogue and understanding among people of all religions and none.
The Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute was reorganized in 2010 to expand on religious liberty initiatives begun by the First Amendment Center in 1994.
The Religious Freedom Center is the home to the Committee on Religious Liberty, a 50-year-old organization founded by the National Council of Churches. It is currently comprised of religious and civil liberties leaders representing a broad spectrum of religious and ideological perspectives.

For accrediting purposes, the Religious Freedom Center does not accept dollar-to-dollar reimbursements for educational programs. A reimbursement is defined as a payment of goods and services used to compensate a Newseum vendor in a specific fiscal year (e.g., labor, food/beverage, linens). The Religious Freedom Center accepts “purpose-restricted grants,” defined as a gift used for a designated educational purpose during a specific timeframe (e.g., “This gift has a purpose restriction and will be used in the 2017 and 2018 fiscal years to support the Religious Freedom Center’s programming”). This policy ensures that the center will not inadvertently engage in for-profit activities with Newseum vendors or create a conflict of interest with external partners. This procedure is designed to preserve the nonpartisan, nonprofit nature of the center’s educational mission.
