Four new funding opportunities from Mass Humanities seek to respond to the challenges facing the people of Massachusetts. Part of a new three-year strategic plan, the foundation’s 2022 grants calendar prioritizes support for projects and local organizations serving historically marginalized communities.
Mass Humanities offers four ways for non-profits and tribal entities to seek funding in 2022:
- Expand Massachusetts Stories Grants: Up to $20,000 for projects that seek, share, and/or interpret stories of Massachusetts, using the humanities to improve our shared understanding of the Bay State.
- Staffing the Humanities Grants: $7000-$20,000 grants to small museums, humanities, and community cultural organizations to increase staffing to grow, create, or bring back humanities programs.
- Reading Frederick Douglass Together Grants: Up to $1200 for communities to host shared public readings of Frederick Douglass’s speech on the meaning of the 4th of July.
- Bridge Street Sponsorships: Up to $1500 for history centers, societies, and historic sites to host online or hybrid programs during the 2022 calendar year.
The grants are made possible through support from Mass Cultural Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and individual donors.
