Wyoming Humanities relies on donations from individuals and businesses to provide top quality programming to all of Wyoming’s residents.

Wyoming Humanities, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, champions the humanities in Wyoming in order to “take a closer look” at the issues that make us human. Your support will help promote a Wyoming that uses the humanities to take a closer look at the past, present, and future of our state and nation.  Your tax-deductible gift ensures we continue to serve Wyomingites in all corners of the state with our programs and grants.

Your donation to Wyoming Humanities supports humanities programming throughout the state of Wyoming.
