Promotion Kit 2015

First, thank you for volunteering to help get the word out about the History Fund "tax check-off." With your help, we’ll enact a coordinated promotion effort across the state to raise awareness about the History Fund and the local history projects it funds.

Our campaign asks the question, “What would it be like if historical figures--like Annie Oakley, Ulysses Grant and the Wright Brothers--had to fill out modern-day tax forms?” Answer: Hilarious situations in which they worry about everything from deductions to deadlines. This humor-based campaign is intended to 1) Raise awareness about the Ohio History Tax Check-Off, and 2) Encourage Ohioans to donate to the Tax Check-Off on their Ohio tax returns.

Below are links to print and online materials that you and your organization can use to help promote the Ohio History Tax Check-Off. Click on “Promo Plan/Social Media Calendar” for a day-by-day guide to the promotion plan, which includes a detailed social media calendar.
