The WHC has huge impact map
The humanities in Wisconsin are in danger.

If you are reading this, your life has been changed by the humanities.

The WHC receives about 90 percent of its funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Thanks to those funds, we support the creative work of schools, libraries, museums, churches, historical societies, colleges and civic groups that strengthen communities big and small, rural and urban, in every region of Wisconsin.

The President's FY2018 budget calls for shutting down the NEH. What happens to the NEH, and the Wisconsin Humanities Council, is in the hands of our representatives in Congress.

If NEH funding is lost, with it go all of our matching grants to community organizations. All our service to communities throughout Wisconsin will end.

You can help make sure that the humanities are available to everyone in Wisconsin. Here’s how!
