Mass Humanities 2022 Grants Calendar
Four new funding opportunities from Mass Humanities seek to respond to the challenges facing the people of Massachusetts. Part of a new three-year strategic plan, the foundation’s 2022 grants calendar prioritizes support for projects and local organizations serving historically marginalized communities.
Mass Humanities offers four ways for nonprofits and tribal entities to seek funding in 2022:
- Expand Massachusetts Stories Grants: Up to $20,000 for projects that seek, share, and/or interpret stories of Massachusetts, using the humanities to improve our shared understanding of the Bay State. Deadline April 11.
Staffing the Humanities Grants: $7000-$20,000 grants to small museums, humanities, and community cultural organizations to increase staffing to grow, create, or bring back humanities programs. Deadline April 4.
Reading Frederick Douglass Together Grants: Up to $1200 for communities to host shared public readings of Frederick Douglass’s speech on the meaning of the 4th of July. Deadline March 28
Bridge Street Sponsorships: Up to $1500 for history centers, societies, and historic sites to host online or hybrid programs during the 2022 calendar year. Deadline March 28.
The grants are made possible through support from Mass Cultural Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and individual donors.
Mass Humanities, a non-profit based in Northampton, conducts and supports programs that use history, literature, philosophy, and the other humanities disciplines to enhance and improve civic life throughout Massachusetts. Since its founding in 1974, the organization has provided millions of dollars in support of thousands of humanities projects across the Commonwealth. Established as the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Mass Humanities is an independent programming and grant-making organization that receives support from the NEH and the Massachusetts Cultural Council as well as private sources.
