Community Stories Grant
Please visit our Humanities for All site for information about California Humanities' new grant program.
Community Stories (previously the California Story Fund) is a competitive grants program to support story-based public humanities projects that collect, preserve, interpret, and share the stories of California communities—past and present. Since 2003, we have awarded over $3 million to over 400 projects through this grant program that seeks to foster greater knowledge, understanding, and empathy among us.
More Information on Applying for a Community Stories Grant
The Community Stories program funds projects that focus on the collection and sharing of real stories of California’s communities. Projects must involve at least one humanities expert as an advisor, use the methods of analysis that inform the humanities as well as community-based research, and produce work that is publicly accessible. Application eligibility is limited to California-based nonprofit organizations or local/state public agencies or institutions. Grant awards range up to $10,000 and a cash or in-kind match is required. There are two yearly rounds of open applications for Community Stories.
