The humanities are a powerful tool to guide and shape who we are and where we’re going.

Every dollar donated has an impact.

Your contribution puts a book into someone’s hands, creates programs that will inspire the next leader, and sparks conversations that make us a more open and understanding society.

Michigan Humanities has a proud history of supporting a wide range of programs and grants, giving local communities the ability to develop our understanding of who we are.

Here are just a few of the programs and grants we are
proud to make happen:

  • The wonder of a diverse group of people gathered to hear Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha speak movingly about her commitment to Flint’s people and the power of communities in her Great Michigan Read book, “What the Eyes Don’t See.”
  • The importance of more than $535,000 in grant awards to Michigan communities.

  • The joy of young participants at Poetry Out Loud, gaining leadership and confidence while reciting and interpreting the collective works of many great poets.

  • The excitement in a rural community, where the whole town comes out, marching band and all, to see the Museum on Main Street traveling exhibit Crossroads: Change in Rural America at their local library.


Please take a moment to show that the humanities matter with your one-time or recurring donation.

Best Regards,

Shelly Hendrick Kasprzycki
President and CEO
