Maryland Humanities Annual Report 2016

We are pleased to present our 2016 Annual Report, covering the period November 1, 2015–October 31, 2016. During this time, we offered 1,602 events in a dozen programs to over 880,000 Marylanders! Inside you’ll find wonderful photos, striking and informative infographics, details of all the grants we awarded, many of our partner organizations, our financial statement, and a list of our generous donors.

To learn more about how we opened ears, eyes, and minds, you can view, download, or print the report.

  • “We were very proud to have been chosen to partner with the Maryland Humanities on this exhibit project. Small museums, such as ours…are generally not able to field programs of this scope. Maryland Humanities has truly given us an opportunity to bring a nationally recognized program to the City of Bowie and Prince Georges County and have made it easy to reach and stretch and accomplish something that we’ve never done before on this level in our small museum system. The support of Maryland Humanities both financially and professionally is invaluable to us.”

  • “I think the continual process of improving her research and presentation through the various levels of competition has been incredibly valuable. It has caused her to dig deeper in her research and build upon and refine her work and presentation.”

    Addie Skillman, National History Day Gold Winner
  • “The students are now far more prepared for the high level of scholarship and achievement that will be expected of them in future years. MHD also elevated many other skills too. These include public speaking, the use of technology, learning to collaborate.”
