Meet Our Grantees

In 2016, we supported nearly 40 scholarly and cultural organizations through $164,500 in grant-making. These organizations have demonstrated a commitment to their communities, enriching lives and educating citizens through the power of the humanities. We are proud of all they have accomplished, and we hope you will join as we strive to preserve local voices, promote civic dialogue, and ensure that the rich heritage of our communities is available for all to enjoy.
