About California Humanities
Our mission at California Humanities is to connect Californians to ideas and one another in order to understand our shared heritage and diverse cultures, inspire civic participation, and shape our future.
California Humanities is an independent nonprofit and state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. This year marks the organization’s 43rd anniversary of promoting the humanities as relevant, meaningful ways to understand the human condition and connect us to each other in order to help strengthen California. The organization produces, funds, creates and supports humanities-based projects and programs, eye-opening cultural experiences and meaningful conversations and connections.
