Support the Humanities

The National Humanities Center is here to remind us that the human story isn’t a staid volume on a library shelf. It is a living, breathing narrative written in real time. Biographies and blues. Speeches and songs. Poetry, prose, protest signs.

Humanities research and scholarship provide context and insight for making thoughtful decisions about our lives, our communities, our culture. Humanities outreach and education are a love letter to life itself and to the future.

This is a critical moment for the National Humanities Center and in the hearts and minds of all of us. An important moment filled with opportunity and possibility.

Please help underwrite our future. Your gift can help transform the human story.
