Mass Humanities thanks Governor Baker and our allies in the House of Representatives and Massachusetts State Senate for their continued support for the humanities. This month Governor Baker signed the FY21 state budget, with $18.1 million allocated for Mass Cultural Council, which provides major funding for Mass Humanities. We’re grateful to our elected officials for protecting the cultural sector as the commonwealth combats the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mass Humanities is especially grateful to our partners at Mass Cultural Council and MASSCreative, and to the many residents who advocate for the humanities’ place in public life. In 2020 Mass Humanities awarded $1.2 million to 207 organizations in Massachusetts.
