The Kentucky Humanities Center for the Book is a 501 c 3….

I love the idea that you’re thinking about NEW funding!

Thanks, Bill

Hi Guy,
Our situation is similar to South Dakota’s in that we’re a program of a humanities council which is a 501. When we produced the book festival NEA funded us each year for many years, but the funding was to Humanities Montana.

Subject: are you a 501(c)3?

All—I have been discussing with a contact at the National Endowment for the Arts on how affiliated centers could apply for programming grants. You have to be a 501, I was told.

Can you tell me whether you are or are not a 501©3?

As I mentioned the last time we met, I want to organize the centers into regions, to encourage more collaboration, but I was also thinking these regional groupings might be organized as a 501, in order for them to apply for NEA funding.

Please let me know your thoughts as well re becoming or being (if you already are) a 501.

I want to invite NEA to make a presentation on applying for grant funding.
