Oregon Humanities, formerly the Oregon Council for the Humanities, was established in 1971 as an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is one of five statewide partners of the Oregon Cultural Trust — programs that support an Oregon that invites diverse perspectives, explores challenging questions and strives for just communities. ​
