California Humanities is now accepting applications for the next round of Humanities for All Quick Grant funding through October 16th. Guidelines, online application instructions, and FAQs are available at the HFA Funding webpage. Register HERE for the Humanities for All Quick Grants Application webinar on September 7, 2017. The webinar will be recorded and made available on our website.
The Humanities for All Quick Grants are small grants (between $1,000 and $5,000) for smaller-scale public humanities activities and projects that will take place within the 12-month grant period (January 1 – December 31, 2018). We anticipate funding Humanities for All Quick Grants three times a year.
Congratulations New Awardees!
From the third round of the Humanities for All Quick Grants competitive grant process, California Humanities would like to congratulate and welcome 12 new local public humanities projects. This cohort of awarded projects will take place across the state through August 2018. Visit California Humanities calendar to catch a public humanities event in your community.

Humanities for All Grant Programs
Humanities for All grants support public humanities projects that address the needs and interests of Californians, encourage greater public participation in humanities programming, particularly by new and/or underserved audiences, and promote understanding and empathy among all our state’s peoples in order to cultivate a thriving democracy. Appropriate programming formats include but are not limited to interpretive exhibits, community dialogue and discussion series, workshops and participatory activities, presentations and lectures, conversations and forums, and interactive and experiential activities.
Under the Humanities For All program, California Humanities also offers Humanities for All Project Grants (between $10,000 and $20,000) to be awarded twice a year for larger public humanities projects of up to two years duration sponsored by California-based nonprofit organizations and public agencies.
