Double Down on the Humanities. Be a Humanities Champion

The humanities are the basic elements that make us human - our capacity for reflection, our creativity, our shared stories, and our diverse cultures and identities. The humanities offer us connection and understanding in an increasingly divided world. Nevada Humanities programs nurture healthy and just communities, connect people, and strengthen our bonds with rich intellectual and cultural lives. They stretch our minds and cultivate a sense of place. They make us Nevadans together. Become a monthly donor and support Nevada Humanities in this work. Double Down is a monthly giving program that amplifies the humanities throughout Nevada.
