Institution description
The Maine Humanities Council, Maine’s affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), offers humanities programs and grants for all Mainers.

We don’t do this work alone. We partner with libraries, hospitals, school districts, adult education programs, correctional facilities, historical societies, and more to offer quality programs and grants around the state.

Our Mission
The Maine Humanities Council, a statewide non-profit organization, uses the humanities— literature, history, philosophy, and culture — as a tool for positive change in Maine communities. Our programs and grants encourage critical thinking and conversations across social, economic, and cultural boundaries.

Our Vision
Maine communities transformed by the power and pleasure of ideas.

How our work is funded
Foundations, corporations, and individuals are essential supporters of the MHC. Less than one-third of our funding is provided by a base grant from the NEH. We also receive annual funding from the state of Maine, 100% of which is given out as grants to Maine nonprofits.
