The Ohio History Fund is one of the few grant programs in the state for archaeology projects. Your contribution to the “Ohio History Fund” tax check-off on your state tax return makes these grants possible. To donate look for "Ohio History Fund" on your Ohio tax return (line 26e) and designate a dollar amount. You can also donate even if you are not receiving a refund. 

Since the Ohio History Fund began in 2012 it has made 63 grants in 36 counties, totaling $598,000. However, the need is greater. Since 2013 the Ohio History Fund has received 347 grant applications from 59 counties, totaling almost $4.2 million in requests. The contribution goal last year was $88,000; $99,000 was received. The goal for 2019 is $100,000.
