Please Give to the Ohio History Fund

Ohio History Fund Grant Image

The Ohio History Connection’s History Fund grant program is one of the few grant program in the state just for history, pre-history, and historic preservation projects – and it needs your help to grow. If you receive a refund on your Ohio income taxes, consider donating a portion of it to the “Ohio History Fund” tax “check-off,” line 26d on your state tax return.

Your donation with those from your friend, relatives, and thousands of other history lovers makes possible grants for local history projects in places big and small throughout Ohio.  Since the Ohio History Fund started in 2012, it has made 54 grants in 33 counties for a total of $522,000.  Proving that there is a great need for the History Fund, it has received 249 grant applications from 55 counties, totaling almost $3 million in requests!  For a list of grant recipients, visit https://www.ohiohistory.org/preserve/local-history-office/history-fund/recipients

Not receiving a tax refund?  You can still help:  buy an Ohio History mastodon license plate.  Twenty dollars from the sale of each set of plates benefits the History Fund grant program.  To learn more, visit:  http://www.bmv.ohio.gov/vr-sp-organization.aspx

You can also make a donation directly to the Ohio History Connection for the History Fund, visit www.ohiohistory.org and click on “Give.” Be sure to designate your gift “for Ohio History Fund.”

The more you give to the Ohio History Fund, to more grants it can make to organizations like yours that preserves history in our state.  Questions about the History Fund?
