As the North Carolina affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), North Carolina Humanities is charged with bringing the public humanities to local communities. We receive major support from the NEH and we rely on this funding to keep grant and program opportunities low-cost and operational.

Your story makes a powerful difference. Thank you for sharing it. 

Please contact your local or Congressional representatives and tell them you support North Carolina Humanities, the NEH, and other cultural organizations in our state. Please share how you, your organization, or your community has positively benefited from North Carolina Humanities grants and programs.

Nominees must be current residents of North Carolina at the start of their service and be supportive of NC Humanities’ mission and values. Self-nominations and nominations of others are accepted.
