Carolina Public Humanities would not be possible without your generous support. Registration fees cover only 30% of the cost of presenting seminars and we rely upon private resources to sustain the high quality programming you expect. Gifts of all sizes help keep our programs affordable and accessible to as many participants as possible. Donations also help provide scholarship assistance to public schoolteachers in our state. Your gifts make it possible for us to attract and compensate top faculty and hold our events in comfortable, convenient venues. Thank you again for your ongoing support of the humanities. We couldn’t do it without your help.

Your gift makes all the difference — to our faculty, our teachers, and our staff.

If you’d like, you can specify your gift to support the area that interests you most.

  • You can choose to assist us in reaching our state’s K-12 teachers and students
  • Support our outstanding faculty, or contribute to our general operating funds, which are critical to our success
  • You can direct your gifts to grow our endowment funds and enable us to offer our programs at more affordable rates
