The National Endowment for the Humanities has recognized CHNM’s significance by awarding a rare Challenge Grant to build an endowment that will secure its infrastructure and innovation funding. The grant will provide $750,000 if CHNM raises $2.25 million of endowment funds, which will give CHNM the ability to explore new projects and emerging technologies.
