Minnesota Humanities Center

A nonprofit organization

A vibrant, thriving society rooted in justice needs the wisdom and vision of its people. A strong society values and honors all people, recognizing that in order to understand the present and build the future, one must know the past.

We need your help. Our communities are at risk - facing mounting inequities, racial discrimination, educational barriers, and more. We need community members like you to help bridge the divides within our state and come together as a collective community. Through the humanities we are given the tools for reflection, inquiry, analysis, respectful dialogue, and change - teaching empathy, cultural awareness, and compassion.

We need the humanities to expand understanding, learning, and compassion; bringing people together to constructively dialogue around important community, social, economic, and environmental issues. We need support from those who believe as strongly as we that change is possible. Your support of MHC will help us breakdown the barriers that continue to divide and move us all toward a vibrant and just Minnesota. 

Responsive    Relevant    Robust

The humanities are vital in helping us understand and interpret the human experience. They are responsive to our world today, helping to shape our collective future.

Your support brings critical dollars for MHC. As the central hub, MHC catalyzes humanities organizations across the state and supports our communities through vital, responsive programming that uplift marginalized communities and cultivates a more informed citizenry.
