Philanthropy — small, medium, or large
1973 Attorney General Lionel Murphy,
first Humanist of the Year, created Civil Celebrants
to free Humanists from the cords
which tied them to the church.
His aim was to bring dignity to
secular people through ceremonies.
The program has been a huge success
but has received substantial
and serious setbacks in the last ten years.
Most Funeral Directors, to whom people turn
at the time of death, only "recommend" celebrants
who adhere to their unstated low fee schedule.
This fee is extremely low (especially in NSW and Queensland)
such that those who choose to do quality secular funerals are
soon forced to leave the profession or lower standards.
We need assistance to advertise for celebrants to be contacted
— before the funeral
