Welcome to the Alabama Humanities Alliance

We celebrate thinking. We encourage inquiry. We live for surprising discoveries. We exist to join together those who hunger for knowledge and create a sense of belonging among those who desire to learn. We are more than an organization — we are an alliance of thinkers. We are the Alabama Humanities Alliance.

This September, the Alabama Humanities Alliance awarded $800,000 in one-time funding to 83 humanities-based nonprofits across the state. These grants supply much-needed support to many of Alabama’s most cherished cultural landmarks and community resources as they continue to recover from the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
