No man is so poor as to have nothing worth giving; as well might the mountain streamlets say they have nothing to give the sea because they are not rivers. Give what you have. To someone it may be better than you dare to think.
-Henry W. Longfellow
The humanities have always played a critical role in society's civic and cultural well-being. Here in Utah, the Utah Humanities Council takes a leading role. Since 1975, UHC has been assembling a vast array of resources that expand minds and open hearts, helping Utahns understand the past, participate fully in the present, and actively shape the future.
The Utah Humanities Council receives major support through annual grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts, and Parks Fund, and the State of Utah.
In addition, private donations and in-kind gifts from businesses, foundations, individuals, institutions of learning and organizations make UHC’s programs possible. We couldn’t do our work without their support and wish to extend a grateful acknowledgment to each and every one of our 2008 contributors!
