The WHC has huge impact map

We administer the only grant program in the state devoted to the public humanities. Every year, WHC grants provide $120,000 in support of projects in schools, libraries, museums, churches, historical societies, colleges and civic groups in communities big and small, rural and urban, all over the state. Here are some examples of projects we have funded!

Please call or write to your member of Congress and to Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin today to ask for their support for full funding of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Federal/State Partnership, which funds the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
