Who We Are

Delaware Humanities is Delaware’s independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Founded in 1973, Delaware Humanities provides educational and cultural opportunities to Delawareans through original programming and grants for non-profit organizations. Delaware Humanities helps Delawareans gain a deeper understanding of human identity, intellectual achievement, diverse cultures, and our shared heritage.

Our Role In Delaware

Delaware Humanities provides educational and arts outreach, special projects, and funding opportunities to bring Delawareans together. We connect cultural, educational, and civic institutions statewide to provide public events that enhance our understanding of who we are, where we’ve been, and where we are going as individuals, communities, and citizens of Delaware.
