The Wisconsin Humanities Council supports and creates programs that use history, culture, and discussion to strengthen community life for everyone in Wisconsin.
Established in 1972 as an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Wisconsin Humanities Council supports public programs that engage the people of Wisconsin in the exploration of human cultures, ideas, and values. To accomplish its mission, the council awards grants to support programs in libraries, museums, universities, historical societies, schools, and other nonprofit settings throughout the state.
Sponsors the Wisconsin Book Festival each October.
