Florida Humanities is dedicated to building strong communities and informed citizens by providing Floridians with the opportunity to explore the heritage, traditions and stories of our state and its place in the world.
Established in 1973 as a private non-profit organization, Florida Humanities (FH) (formally known as the Florida Humanities Council) is the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. FH uses the disciplines of the humanities to develop public programs and resources that explore history, literary and artistic traditions, cultural values, and ethics.
FH provides grants to non-profit organizations to provide public humanities programs and cultural resources in their communities. FH’s award-winning magazine, FORUM, which is circulated throughout the state, provides historic perspective and cultural insight into a wide-range of Florida topics.
Governed by a board comprised of members of the academic, public, nonprofit and corporate sectors, FH funding comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the State of Florida, and private donation.
