Please Consider a Recurring Gift

Small gifts each month make a big difference in our ability to open doors to the world of ideas. The benefits of recurring giving include no need to remember to renew your support, fewer solicitation letters, and a sense of satisfaction knowing that your steady support keeps our outreach strong and programs coming making monthly giving a true win-win!

For example:

$10 a month ($120/total for the year) brings a Speakers Bureau program on Nebraska history a 4th grade class.

$20 a month ($240/total) provides gift books for a six-week session of Prime Time Family Reading Time.

$50 a month ($600/total) covers the honorarium and travel expenses of a scholar to lead a community conversation for a Museum on Main Street exhibition.

$83 a month ($1,000/total) qualifies for the Patron's Circle, an annual recognition group providing support for HN's core programs.

$150 a month ($1,800/total) enables a high school social studies class to send a delegation of students and their teacher to Capitol Forum Day.

$500 a month ($6,000/total) underwrites the cost of the a week-long workshop for middle school kids during Chautauqua.

Your gift matters.

Julia learned to explore different perspectives on global policies at Capitol Forum on America's Future. She is now a senator representing her home district at the Nebraska Unicameral. 

Joaquin didn't like school and never read on his own. Now that he attends Prime Time Family Reading Time, he is interested in books, his grades have improved, and his mother has confidence he will graduate from high school.  

Valerie found that hosting a Museum on Main Street exhibit from the Smithsonian  increased the total number of visitors to the museum she manages by 20%, including a boost in out-of-town visitors who ate and shopped locally, giving her community a measurable economic boost.

Tameka found the courage to speak her mind and make an impact when a published poet mentored her school's Louder Than a Bomb slam poetry team. 

These are just four stories out of millions. For more than 40 years, Humanities Nebraska has inspired and enriched personal and public life by offering opportunities to thoughtfully engage with history and culture. Your gift will enable us to continue to reach out to people of all ages, all backgrounds, all perspectives, throughout the state.
