Washington Stories Fund Grants
The purpose of the Washington Stories Fund is to record and share with the broader community the little-known stories of people or groups whose contributions add to the cultural richness and health of Washington State.
The Washington Stories Fund is a tool to dismantle barriers and enhance cultural understanding through the public humanities. This grant seeks to elevate the stories of underrepresented people or groups and enhance the public’s awareness of new and unique perspectives and cultures. It also aims to cast constructive new light on current issues, nurture compassion, and prompt action.
Washington Stories Fund grants will be available in the summer of 2023.
