Our work focuses on the smallest of humanities orgs, because we believe every town in Florida should have access to the humanities through their library, museum, or historical society. Visit to see which orgs received funding.

Florida has one of the best parks systems in the world (yes, we said it). And they are fantastic spaces to exercise or practice social distancing. Make it a goal to visit a state (or local) park this weekend!
