New Hampshire Humanities

2020 Goals:

In 2020, we’ll increase our offerings and provide access for Granite Staters from all sectors, communities, walks of life, income levels and ages. We’ll bring innovative humanities programs like Ideas on Tap and Open Questions into new venues in every corner of the state including libraries, community organizations, churches, prisons, offices and non-traditional venues such as pubs, mountains and city parks. We’ll create a new strategic plan and vision, help employers retain employees and contribute to the quality of life in New Hampshire by bringing Humanities@Work into workplaces of all sizes, and expand our community project grants to support humanities collaborations across the state.

Fundraising Events:

New Hampshire Humanities’ Annual Dinner is our sole fundraising event and allows New Hampshire Humanities to stay true to our mission of providing free, public humanities programs for people of all ages and from all walks of life, in every community. By purchasing a ticket to or sponsoring the Annual Dinner, you’ll be directly supporting quality humanities programs across the state each year, and allowing us to ensure they are free and open to all.

Giving Opportunities:

Supporting the work of New Hampshire Humanities helps fund programs that explore what it means to be a Granite Stater, an American, a citizen of the world and a lifelong learner. Donations to the Annual Fund, through a one-time gift or monthly sustaining gift, fund programs in every corner of the state. Naming New Hampshire Humanities as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement fund or other estate plan ensures that excellence in the humanities continues long into the future. We offer a number of customizable sponsorship opportunities that offer outstanding exposure before 20,000 individuals, organizations and businesses.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers may assist at special events, help publicize programs, take photos and/or write testimonials about our programs. Tell us your story!

We’re happy to match your talents and interests with an existing organizational need. Please contact us.
