Significant Grant Awards ( 1998-2021 )
The major funding source for our work has been the National Endowment for the Humanities ( NEH) an independent federal agency created in 1965. It is the largest funder of humanities programs in the United States. Because institutions throught the nation compete for these grants, it is a prestigious honor to receive them. NEH has generously supported professional development programs, materials and media development, and a broad variety or educational and public projects. The majority of funding has been for the Crafting Freedom Workshops. In addition to the significant NEH grants listed here, small grants and in kind ocntributions and donated services have also been received totalling approximately $1,000,000 since 1998.
