Give Today to Transform Lives in North Carolina

Help us deliver statewide public humanities programming

/ 150

Our local programs strengthen and build communities by fostering thoughtful dialogue around issues of importance.

Since 1972, the North Carolina Humanities Council has served as a statewide advocate for life-long learning and community development.

The public humanities help us to make sense of our world by connecting us as individuals to a larger society as we explore our shared human experiences. Through programming grounded in literature, philosophy, religion, history and more, we are able to understand and celebrate our heritages and cultural diversity.

With your help, people of all ages, backgrounds, and locations across North Carolina will have the opportunity to experience and engage with the public humanities through our programs, grants and special initiatives.

Please help us continue to deliver these life changing opportunities with a tax deductible donation today!

Options for establishing monthly gifts, matching gifts, planned giving and bequests are also available.

For more information, please contact Development Associate, Melanie Moore, at or (704) 687-1524

"[The program] has given our small community a first time chance to participate in book discussions. The scholars bring so much to the series with their knowledge and insight into the authors and the works." - Let's Talk About It, Project Director

"All sections of the project [Hammer Down] have been met with overwhelmingly positive response from our community, veterans, and teachers...One student said the film inspired him to speak to his grandfather about Vietnam for the first time." - Standing Together Grant Project Director

"This program fulfilled and exceeded our expectations of advancing inter-disciplinary perspectives in a continuously-evolving conversation between science, art, past and future. It achieved the goal of creating an informative yet speculative space to produce knowledge, both for our scholars and the public in attendance." - Grassroots Grant Project Director
