Your Tax Refund Can Make History
Eleven Organizations Receive
First-Ever History Fund Grants

Your Tax Refund Can Make History. That’s the message that prompted 17,391 Ohioans to contribute a portion of their 2011 state income tax refund to the Ohio Historical Society last year, making $114,000 available for a new competitive matching grants program that helps fund projects by local historical societies and related organizations throughout the state.



During Ohio’s annual Statehood Day observance at the Statehouse in Columbus yesterday, 11 recipients of History Fund Grants made possible by last year’s contributions were announced.
