New Hampshire Humanities offers the only grants program in our state dedicated to making the humanities accessible to all. The humanities are the ideas and knowledge about human history and culture that help people understand life today. Nonprofit applicants work with a trained expert to plan all kinds of programs, from lectures to book or film discussions to walking tours to community conversations. “Topics are up to the applicant,” notes Susan Hatem, Director of Programs and Grant Making.

Did you know that skills learned through the humanities are the same qualities that make top-notch employees—the ability to think critically and creatively, innovate, analyze data, solve complex problems, write well, and communicate effectively? Our Humanities@Work programs help employers bring high quality, innovative humanities programs into the workplace, enriching employees’ engagement and quality of life in and outside of work, a key part of any company’s employee retention strategy.

What inspired you to become a monthly donor to NHH?

The 14th annual One Book One Valley, a community read program for the Mount Washington Valley and surrounding towns, will be held in 2019, and will once again be supported by a Community Project grant from New Hampshire Humanities. This year's book is Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt. Nutt is the Health, Science & Environment reporter for The Washington Post. She wrote this book to expand and follow up on an article about the Maines family’s story of raising and advocating for their transgender child.
