KHC offers free speakers for non-profits


KHC’s new Kansas Stories catalog showcases lectures and discussions available free to Kansas nonprofits, as funding allows. These stories examine our shared human experience — our innovations, culture, heritage, and conflicts.

KHC Speakers Bureau presentations are intended for  out-of-school adults.

“Kansas Humanities Council programs are awesome and a real benefit to rural Kansans. You make our community more vibrant and connected. KHC enhances our quality of life here.”

How To Bring a KHC Speaker to Your Event

  1. Review the Kansas Stories catalog and select a speaker and topic.
  2. Contact the speaker and confirm time, date, and location.
  3. Immediately apply for funding to bring the speaker to your community. Find out how. (Please note: Completed applications, including the DUNS number, must be submitted six weeks before the event date to be considered for funding. KHC is not able to fund applications that do not meet this requirement.)
  4. Publicize your event. Download a press release, speaker bio, and KHC logo poster.
  5. Tell us how it went. After the event, download and fill out a Speakers Bureau Evaluation and Cost Share Form and email them to Leslie Von Holten.
