Humanities Council of Washington, DC
The Humanities Council of Washington, DC (HCWDC) is a non-profit organization that provides grant support for community projects that enrich the lives of DC residents through the humanities disciplines. Additionally, HCWDC produces humanities programs, such as Soul of the City andLive to Read, with support from area non-profits, the NEH, and the DC government. The organization was founded in1980 as a private affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and is one of 56 similar institutionslocated in each U.S. state and territory.
HCWDC is governed by a 25 person board of directors, 5 of whom are appointed by the mayor. Working in conjunction with the Council’s small staff, these community leaders are dedicated to creating an environment, in all DC wards and neighborhoods, where residents can participate in open conversations about the humanities and how they reflect contemporary issues and challenges.
Though the HCWDC receives funding from the NEH, it relies heavily on generous support from donorspassionate about promoting the instructive and enriching influence of the humanities in the District of Columbia.
