Humanities Washington
Letters of Intent due 6/10/2019, full applications due 7/22/2019

Humanities Washington is now accepting applications from organizations throughout the state for our Washington Stories Fund award. Four grants of up to $5,000 each are available for programs that highlight the little-known stories of a person or group whose contributions add to the cultural richness and health of Washington State.

Humanities WA will accept Letters of Intent for the Washington Stories Fund award from nonprofit organizations until June 10. Selected organizations will then be asked to submit a full proposal by July 22. Grants will be awarded in fall of 2019.

Using everything from cave paintings to tweets, humans are born storytellers. Through stories we communicate our history, values, trials, and triumphs. But sometimes the voices of one group are drowned out by the voices of others because of size, disability, geographic isolation, marginalization, or other factors.

The purpose of the Washington Stories Fund is to record and share with the broader community the little-known stories of people or groups whose contributions add to the cultural richness and health of Washington State. Started with generous seed funding from the Lenore and Charles Hale Family Fund, the Washington Stories Fund is a tool to dismantle barriers and enhance cultural understanding.

The Washington Stories Fund is a general grant opportunity for which any nonprofit organization can apply. Awards are in the amount of $5,000 and recipients are selected through a competitive process. In 2019, we will award four grants of $5,000 to groups or organizations through a competitive process, and projects require a funding match. We are current accepting letters of intent.
