Support History Now!

You’re someone who knows the power of history. You know that when we understand our past and where we come from, we can create a more connected Ohio and a better future for all.

If you’re like me, you fell in love with history because of excellent teachers who brought the past to life and taught that history isn’t just a list of names and dates; it involves music, literature, art, people and all aspects of life.OHCSupport

I chose a career in public history because I wanted to share my love of history with others. I believe stories of the past help us have greater empathy and make us more engaged, caring and connected citizens.

Will you join me in committing to history today by making a gift to support our greatest needs?

You make the work of preserving our collective past possible so we can create a better future. When you make a gift to support our greatest needs, you’re directly impacting our ability to provide essential history education and preservation for all Ohioans.

With your support we can give students unforgettable field trips and immersive learning experiences, care for a collection of nearly two million artifacts, help local communities preserve their past and continue to inspire curiosity and interest in Ohio’s stories and places.

One of the top highlights of my job is the opportunities it affords me to see more of Ohio and experience its art, stories, natural beauty, local businesses and diverse communities. Ohio has so much to offer, and when we preserve these narratives and places, we can create a better future for all Ohioans.

Thank you for your belief in the power of history to create a better future. Your continued support is vital to our mission of bringing history to life for all Ohioans. Together we make a difference!

With sincere gratitude,
Megan Wood
Executive Director & CEO
