For over forty-five years, we have provided accessible public humanities programs for audiences across New Jersey. If you value an empowered statewide community that is connected through the public humanities, please consider making a donation. Your support furthers our mission—to harness the power of the humanities to strengthen our pluralistic society.
In 1965, Congress established NJCH as one of 55 state Councils meant to strengthen the nation and educate its citizens. The funding that was initially designated, and continues to be disbursed based on state population, was designed to act as seed funding for Council operations but not to cover the critical growth needed to meet its goals, especially in today’s world.
Your support is more important than ever in helping us to realize the ideals written into The National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities Act:
The arts and the humanities belong to all the people of the United States.
A better understanding of our past and present, allows us a better vision of the future.
The humanities offer its citizens the wisdom and vision that Democracy demands.
The humanities are an appropriate matter of concern to the Federal government.
