Support the Council - Sustain the Humanities

Arizona Humanities Council programs are an investment in Arizona's citizens and communities - because lifelong learning enriches our shared cultural experience and helps us all become better and more thoughtful citizens of our state, our nation, and the world. The humanities play a critical role in this process as a catalyst for the thoughtful examination of today's social, political, cultural, and religious issues.
