Humanities at the Center Campaign

Purchase and renovation of a new facility for the Vermont Humanities Council, and endowment for programs.

As the Vermont Humanities Council enters its fourth decade, it seeks to create a Humanities Center in Montpelier, which would serve as office, meeting place, resource center, and site for some local Council programs. Such a center would move the office of this state-wide organization from Morrisville to Montpelier, the state capital. VHC purchased a Victorian Italianate building in Montpelier in December 2004. The Council is conducting an $800,000 capital campaign to pay for the facility, renovate it for VHC programs and provide $100,000 of new endowment. This $200,000 NEH challenge grant application is an essential part of that campaign. Reduced operating costs and income from the new endowment will provide funds for new and expanded program initiatives as well.
