Campaign for the Humanities

Sustaining Excellence, Innovation
and Access for the Future


A big thank you to everyone who supported the Campaign for the Humanities, from our campaign steering committee to the generous people of New Hampshire who made investments in the future of NH Humanities.

The Campaign for the Humanities raised $2.1 Million in support of two exciting initiatives:

Humanities to Go

Thanks to your generosity, and a $350,000 Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, our most popular and far reaching program, Humanities to Go will offer expanded programming to experience and practice the humanities in meaningful ways in your community.

A $1 million endowment and $400,000 spend-down fund will enable New Hampshire Humanities to reimagine Humanities to Go

      - to experiment with new, more experiential offerings

      - to bring Socratic discussions to coffee shops and pubs

      - to be more nimble in designing conversations on hot button issues while recognizing the universal human  questions that always need to be explored.

The New Ventures Fund

The New Ventures Fund is a $600,000 spend-down fund that gives New Hampshire Humanities the ability to be bold, to experiment with new topics, venues, partnerships, and audiences and to evaluate impact. Over time, the expectation is that new, creative programming will attract new support that will replace New Ventures money once it’s all spent. The New Ventures Fund will give us the resources to take the kind of risks that can lead to transformational experiences.
