We envision a Delaware where the respectful exchange of ideas empowers a flourishing democracy.

Our History

Founded in 1973, Delaware Humanities is Delaware’s independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our organization provides educational and cultural opportunities to people and communities in all three counties through original programming and grants for non-profits. We work to help Delawareans gain a deeper understanding of human identity, intellectual achievement, diverse cultures, and our shared heritage.

In 2023 we will be commemorating our 50th anniversary! Sign-up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on the many exciting programs and events to come.
