The WHC makes a difference in Wisconsin


The Wisconsin Humanities Council 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. Here are some examples of projects we have funded!

Wisconsin’s Senators and Representatives like to hear from you. Remember, what happens to the NEH, and the Wisconsin Humanities Council, is in the hands of our representatives in Congress.
