To support Maryland Humanities is to invest in Marylanders and the communities we call home.

If your life has been influenced by the power of the humanities, you understand the importance of the work we do. Literature, history, philosophy, and ethics help us understand what it means to be human. Through partnerships and programming, Maryland Humanities works to ensure that the humanities empower us to thrive in our daily lives. In promoting lifelong learning, thoughtful dialogue, and the healthy exchange of ideas, we help solve problems and enrich people’s lives.

Your support is essential.

By making a tax-deductible contribution, you enable us to continue to deliver high-quality free or low-cost public programming to more and more Marylanders each year. Think about your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Who would benefit from a vibrant One Maryland One Book discussion? Do you know a young person who would be inspired by researching a historical person or event for Maryland History Day? Could your community find shared meaning in a Museum on Main Street local exhibition? At Maryland Humanities, we work hard to create educational and cultural experiences that matter. Won’t you help us share them with more groups of people, in more places around our state? Learn more about Maryland Humanities programs.
