Your Gift Matters.
At the Idaho Humanities Council, we believe that lifelong learning experiences enrich our culture and ideas change the world. Since our founding as an independent nonprofit in 1973, we've pioneered programming and partnerships that share experiences and spark conversations -- drawing people together, and generating new ideas in diverse settings across the state.
The IHC is the only organization of its kind in Idaho dedicated to bringing the humanities to every Idahoan from Bonners Ferry to Preston, from Salmon to Weiser and every corner in between.
Your funds go directly to support IHC programming and projects.
Your tax-deductible gift supports programs facilitated by IHC staff including Human Ties: Conversations That Matter, Smithsonian traveling exhibits in rural Idaho communities, annual lectures in Idaho Falls, Boise, and Coeur d’Alene, summer institutes for Idaho k-12 teachers, and other special projects. IHC does not receive support from the State of Idaho.
Help us serve more communities, more teachers, and more Idahoans. The humanities help us to fully remember that we are human and are truly connected to one another. It’s those experiences that help us to embrace life’s possibilities and strengthen meaningful ties to our communities.
Thank you for your support!
"Engaging in the humanities awakens something inside us; it challenges our perspectives, fosters opportunities for conversation and connects us to one another. We need this now as much as ever."
