Virginia Humanities Founded in 1974, they are one of fifty-six humanities councils created by Congress with the money and support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to make the humanities available to all Americans. As a non-profit organization, it has been successful thanks to many years of solid bi-partisan commitment to work at federal, state levels and from the NEH itself.
