Grants of up to $2,000 to Arizona nonprofits, agencies, schools, associations, and tribal organizations for innovative public humanities programs. Webinars will take place August 4 and 12, September 1, 13 and 28, October 7 and November 7. Examples of humanities subjects are literature, history, philosophy, languages, art and music history, architecture, folklore, and comparative religion.

The goal of Mini Grants is to foster the capacity-building of small organizations with limited funding, and encourage partnerships and collaboration between nonprofits. While larger institutions can still apply for Mini Grants, they must partner with a smaller institution that will lead the program or project.

Grants are given only for projects or programs that take place in Arizona and/or have direct significance to Arizona. Applications must demonstrate that the humanities are central to the project.

To be considered for support, projects are required to:
- Actively involve a humanities scholar
- Involve public discussion of and/or distribution of humanistic work
- Present objective points of view
- Feature free and open access for any public events

Up to $2,000

Project start dates must begin at least four weeks after the notification date and end by 12 months after the start date.

Any nonprofit group is eligible to apply for grants, including schools, libraries, museums, civic groups, government agencies, service clubs, tribal organizations, professional associations, historical societies, educational institutions, and community organizations.

Please Note: For-profit entities and individuals are not eligible.

The Foundation cannot support the following:
- Individuals (must be a nonprofit organization)
- Advocacy or partisan objectives
- Direct action campaigns
- Operating costs, construction, or renovation
- Profit-making projects
- Scholarships and fellowships
- Occupational training
- Museum, school, or library acquisitions
- Academic credit
- Research for solely scholarly purposes
- Universities, colleges, or affiliated organizations for programs designed primarily for their students
