Help Spread the Word: Ohio has a new funding tool for history projects!
Ohioans have a new and important way to demonstrate their support for history and historic preservation in Ohio.
For the first time, taxpayers will be able to donate a portion of their state income tax refund to the Ohio Historical Society. The Society will use the funds to create a new grant program to support history-related projects throughout Ohio. From the fund, matching grants will be awarded for projects including exhibits and public programs, repair and rehabilitation of historic properties, care for historic objects and documents, education initiatives and much more, in communities across the state. The new grant program will be open to the hundreds of history-related organizations, academic institutions and local governments looking for support of their local history-related initiatives.
Now an Ohio tax refund can MAKE HISTORY! when a portion is donated to the Ohio Historical Society for the new History Grants Fund. Questions? Give us a call at 614-297-2341
