The Federation has completed its new 2024-2026 Strategic Plan—to formally guide our organization through 2026 and chart a meaningful path beyond. This plan clarifies the Federation’s mission, vision, and values and strives to increase its capacity to demonstrate the necessity of councils’ groundbreaking work in communities and their collective impact on civic health and cultural vibrancy. This plan defines four overarching focus areas:

  • Congressional Advocacy
  • Partnering with the National Endowment for the Humanities
  • Building and Expanding Council Resources
  • Centering Equity Through Internal Organizational Work

Every year, the Federation’s annual implementation priorities for the coming year are presented and voted on by the Federation’s House of Delegates at the Annual Business Meeting, typically held in October or November.  

The Federation would like to extend a huge thank you to its stakeholders for their input and efforts into this roadmap for the future, especially our Strategic Planning Committee. Download the 2024–2026 Strategic Plan now for our Mission and Vision statement (page 2), and read more about what we have in store for 2024 and beyond.

Transparency is one of the values centered in this plan, and we earned a Candid Platinum Seal of Transparency!
