CH CARES Humanities Relief Grant Social Media Challenge

We’re at a pivotal moment in our shared history.

Right now, we can use the collective social media reach of ourselves and our organizations, staff, boards, volunteers, and supporters to raise awareness of the problems humanities organizations across the state are rising to meet, and to ask Coloradans for their support.

Below are the organizations that have entered our CH CARES Humanities Relief Grant social media contest. $30,000 in CARES Act funding has been set aside for up to 10 of these deserving organizations.

To vote, click on the link of your favorite organizations below. This will take you to a Facebook post, where you can include your reaction, comment, or post share. Awards will be distributed based on the engagement quality and quantity each organization is able to produce by July 16.

Thanks for your support, and thanks to these incredible organizations for their great work.
