Virginia Humanities has been sharing Virginia’s stories since 1974. Education wants to bring these stories to educators and students of all ages. Our resources are created to make space for empathy, understanding, and a sense of connection to people from the past, the present, and the future.

Your gift, no matter how big or small, helps us with this work, bringing educators and learners together to think more deeply about our communities and to uncover untold stories about Virginia’s history and culture.

Why Give

When we think of educators, we think of all of those who are teaching, including media specialists, librarians, curriculum specialists, after-school specialists, caregivers, homeschool teachers, and more. There are so many different ways in which we are involved in the lives of students, and Virginia Humanities Education is working to make it easier for folks of all learning styles to engage with the humanities, from the elementary level to the high school level and beyond. No matter how much you can give, you are helping us to support educators and learners across the Commonwealth. 

Your gift makes it possible for us to provide support to folks across the state. With your generosity, we are able to continue to pay educators for creating learning experiences to share, provide paid professional development opportunities for Virginia’s teachers, and give supplies and resources to classrooms in Virginia. Educators need your support now more than ever, and your investment makes this all possible.
