Maryland Humanities Council

MHC provides grants to nonprofit organizations that use the humanities (literature, philosophy, history, etc.) to engage Marylanders. Grant categories and criteria encourage free, public programming in many forms including discussions, exhibits, lectures, living history, and seminars using the humanities as the central tools to explore and understand the complexity of an issue.


Maryland State Arts Council

The Grants for Organizations (GFO) granting program provides unrestricted general operating support to nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, as well as units of government, that produce or present ongoing arts programming open to the public. GFO grants are reviewed and awarded on the basis of three evaluation criteria: artistic merit, organizational effectiveness and service to the community.
