New Hampshire Humanities has received a $25,000 grant from The McIninch Foundation to support its Humanities to Go Fund. With this gift New Hampshire Humanities will have the opportunity to transform its most popular and far-reaching program, Humanities to Go. Each year 450 Humanities to Go programs bring 15,000-plus residents together in more than 150 New Hampshire communities. Over the next 10 years, with sustainable funding, Humanities to Go will expand to include intensive explorations of topics, objects and places that foster experiential learning; facilitated Socratic discussions on life’s big questions that take place wherever people gather; and the development of digital resources that support live programming and extend and deepen the impact of our work. 

“The McIninch Foundation has long been a leader in support of the educational and cultural life of the state. Their significant investment in the Humanities to Go Fund will ensure that New Hampshire residents continue to have access to knowledge and thoughtful conversation for many decades to come. We are deeply grateful,” said Deborah Watrous, executive director.

This gift be will be matched 3:1 by the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information about Humanities to Go please visit
