Donate to the Clemente Course in the Humanities


"Clemente teaches altruism. Most of us, when we come in, are on the needing end of everything. We are down, have minimal resources, and feel pretty powerless. What we learn from Clemente is that we have something to give to our communities, and we want to do that. It's pretty empowering, and it changes how we see ourselves.” Clemente Graduate, 2009


When you give to the Clemente Course in the Humanities, you give people from all backgrounds access to a humanities education that can help them transform their lives.

Donations to the Clemente Course in the Humanities, Inc. support courses across the country. We make it possible for new programs to develop in communities that have never hosted a Clemente Course, provide classes for veterans and other special populations, conduct research to support academic success, and provide resources to help local programs become more sustainable.
