History Fund Tax Check-Off Campaign

Promotion Kit 2015
“Your Ohio Tax Return Can Make History!”

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 Ohio History Tax Check-Off 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 tax check-off, and 2) Encourage Ohioans to donate to the tax check-off on their Ohio tax returns.
