give the gift of humanities

The audience loved this program—we had many people tell us after the lecture how important it was to have programming like this.

Thanks to your generosity, we receive messages like this every week. Humanities Montana is the only statewide organization dedicated to providing humanities in all their forms—history, literature, Native American Studies, ethics, and more—throughout Montana in schools, libraries, museums, churches, and other venues.

Using gifts from people like you, we promote community, critical thinking, and culture. You can donate to our Annual Fund today at this secure site. Thank you!
