Virginia Foundation for the Humanities

Who We Are

VFH connects people and ideas to explore the human experience and inspire cultural engagement. By supporting and producing cultural, civic, local, and global educational programs for broad public audiences, VFH encourages discovery and connection through the humanities.

Since its founding in 1974, it has grown to become the largest and most diversely funded state humanities council in the country, producing more than 40,000 humanities programs including festivals, public radio programs, and digital resources, and contributing to more than 3,500 grant projects and 350 individual and collaborate fellowships.

What We Do

Our efforts are educational in nature, but civic in practice. Alongside our festivals, publications, conferences, and radio programs, we’ve contributed to over 3,500 grant projects, and 350 individual and collaborative fellowships. Programs include the Virginia Festival of the Book, With Good Reason Radio, the BackStory podcast, and more!
