The SHARP funds have given us the grace needed for a better-prepared future, not just immediate need.

–Jennifer Martinez, Executive Director of the Altama Museum of Art and History

In December 2021, Georgia Humanities awarded more than $1.03 million in Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) grants to 78 museums, libraries, historical societies, higher education institutions, and other cultural organizations around the state. SHARP funds made it possible for recipients to deliver programs, sustain operations, and build capacity to recover from the effects of the pandemic, and they helped save 184 jobs.


Georgia Humanities recognizes the value of partnerships.

Our ongoing collaborations with cultural and educational organizations across the state broaden our impact and create opportunities for conversation, education, and understanding for Georgians.

Our most meaningful partnership is that with you—our donors. With your support, we share and support programming that enriches lives, minds, and perspectives.
