Endowment for a Humanities Cultural Center and direct support for website design and fundraising.

Green River Community College (GRCC) has a 47-year history of distinguished achievement in the Humanities. However, many important activities are limited or fail due to a lack of coordinated planning or promotion. GRCC proposes to found a replicable Humanities Cultural Center that will: link Humanities courses with GRCC professional-technical programs; collaborate with regional cultural institutions; be a web-based clearinghouse for information on regional Humanities activities; develop interdisciplinary curricula (such as Learning Communities); and raise $476,476 over ten years for a permanent endowment to guarantee long-term funding for the Humanities. GRCC requests $183,750 from the NEH that will be matched by $367,500 from non-federal sources. The Humanities have a singular power to help people see bridges where they have only imagined barriers. Through the Humanities Cultural Center, thousands will annually recognize and celebrate their shared heritage.
