Your generous contribution will ensure that the spirit of humanities programming will reach everyone in Dane County.
The Beyond the Page campaign is a joint effort of the Dane County Library Service and the Madison Community Foundation to create a permanent endowment that will support humanities programming in all 28 public libraries in Dane County – forever.
The Beyond the Page Campaign received a $350,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This collaboration is the first of its kind in the nation. The challenge grant requires that for every $1 from the NEH, $3 in community dollars must be raised.
