Your gift matters

For many incarcerated people, experiences with the humanities
make a profound difference.

Robert Taliaferro is a former student in the Odyssey Beyond Bars humanities course, a program that WH partners with to offer English classes in three Wisconsin prisons. You can hear from him in our second season of Human Powered podcast.

Consider deepening your commitment to WH with a monthly gift. Your regular support provides us with reliable revenue throughout the year.


Making More

A graduate of UW-Madison, Jonathan now lives with his family near Lake Michigan and is happy his monthly gift helps to sustain WH's work around the state.

“One of the biggest contributors to my family’s success and happiness is that of connectedness and community. In getting to know the myriad Wisconsinites through the crucial work of Wisconsin Humanities, I feel a greater sense of togetherness with my fellow citizens. The work of Wisconsin Humanities has deepened my love and appreciation for my adopted state, and it gives me joy to learn about all the ways that people live their lives. I’m always enriched by reading, listening to, and watching the work of Wisconsin Humanities!”
