Creation of an education center and endowment for related humanities programming.

The New Hampshire Historical Society seeks the assistance of a Challenge Grant (its second) from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant will enable the Society to offer programs to school groups and families that are both strong in humanities content and effective pedagogically, and also help build endowment for the long-term support of education programs and services. The Education Center and endowment will significantly increase the Society's capacity to meet the learning needs of the state's young people in a manner in which students learn most effectively. The establishment of an Education Center is part of the Society's larger initiative to strengthen and expand humanities programming for audiences of all ages.

Improvements to the headquarters of the New Hampshire Historical Society to protect a significant collection documenting New Hampshire history from damaging environmental conditions, while reducing heat loss and energy consumption. Upgrades would include insulating the roof and skylights, protecting the collections from ultraviolet light, and replacing heating and mechanical systems.

The New Hampshire Historical Society proposes a rehabilitation of its National Registered-listed headquarters in Concord, the state capital. The Society's headquarters houses the single most comprehensive collection of the materials of New Hampshire history. Guided by the Secretary of the Interior's standards for Rehabilitation, the project will protect these nationally significant holdings against damaging internal environmental conditions and hazards; reduce heat loss, energy consumption, and the Society's carbon "footprint;" and protect the architectural character of the 1911 building. To accomplish these goals, the project will address current heat loss and gain through the building's roof and skylights, eliminate damaging ultraviolet radiation from natural light, and replace century-old heating and mechanical systems in order to safeguard collections, conserve energy, and maintain levels of temperature and relative humidity appropriate to an archive and museum.

Restoring a full-time staff position for the completion of the social studies project “Moose on the Loose,” an open-access website aimed at teaching American history and modern-day civics and government. 

The New Hampshire Historical Society seeks funds to complete the final phase of a social studies project that has been delayed by the pandemic and restore a lost staff position. “Moose on the Loose” is an online resource designed for upper elementary students to instruct them in history, civics, geography, and economics. The project aligns closely with the NEH’s “A More Perfect Union” initiative, introducing kids to foundational ideas of American democracy and the unifying concepts that shape the American character, while celebrating the differences that weave throughout our complex society.
