Giving is a Humanities Discipline
The Humanities Council of Washington DC is the only District organization devoted to identifying, supporting, and showcasing D.C.’s humanities programs. The Humanities Council is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities; however, it is a private, non-profit organization, and not a federal or District agency. The Council relies on the generosity of individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies to sustain and continue its mission to preserve the District’s diverse cultural legacies by providing educational and cultural humanities-based programming throughout the city that explore ideas within a unique Washington context.
There are a number of ways to support the Humanities Council of Washington DC.

Flaxie Pinkett Fund As part of the Humanities Council’s continuing mission to preserve the history and heritage of Washington, DC, we have had the opportunity to explore the life of one of its most prodigious residents, Flaxie Pinkett. Pinkett was an entrepreneur, political and civic activist, and influential mentor. Norris Dodson, Pinkett’s nephew, is leading the way to celebrate her life by building the Flaxie Pinkett Fund, a scholarship initiative for the Humanities Council’s youth leadership program, Soul of the City. To view an online exhibition which tells the story of her life, please visit our Resource Center.
