Humanities Montana is Montana's independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), founded in 1972 by thirteen Montana citizens—academic and civic leaders—in response to Congress' National Arts and Humanities Act of 1965. Since that time, Humanities Montana has benefited hundreds of Montana organizations and thousands of its citizens, providing support for public programs in the humanities throughout the state. Humanities Montana's educational and cultural programs help Montanans develop a deeper understanding of humanity's values and beliefs, intellectual achievements, diverse cultures, and heritages.
Humanities Montana will enrich the lives of all Montanans by fostering inquiry and stimulating civil and informed conversations about the human experience.
