Join the celebration by supporting the Virginia Humanities Fund or any of our programs. In return for your first-time donation of any amount, you will receive a special Virginia Humanities tote bag! Our tote bags are perfect for shopping, carrying books, or traveling.
National Arts and Humanities Month was established in 1993 to honor and recognize the significant impact of art and culture in America. October is a time to enhance the public awareness and foster the active participation of the arts and humanities throughout the year. At Virginia Humanities, we encourage discovery and connection by supporting and producing cultural, civic, local, and global educational programs for broad public audiences.
With your first-time donation, you become an important part of a community of dedicated individuals whose support sustains this work.
Celebrate, donate and join us in sharing our mission throughout the Commonwealth by proudly carrying your Virginia Humanities tote bag!
Make a secure donation with a one-time gift or by making a sustaining gift.
Give Stocks and Securities
The stock market has performed very well recently, and making a gift of appreciated securities to Virginia Humanities may be a smart financial option. By donating stock you have owned for more than one year, you may be able to lower your capital gains and receive a greater tax benefit than with a cash donation, all while supporting Virginia Humanities .
Your Gift Matters
Your support makes it all possible. From public radio programs to K-12 classroom initiatives to individual grant projects, our programs bring the humanities to life throughout the Commonwealth.
