It’s time again to support Ohio archaeology by designating a portion of your Ohio income tax refund for the Ohio History Fund. The Fund is one of the few grant programs in the state funding archaeology projects. Please donate to the "Ohio History Fund" on line 26b of your Ohio tax return. The deadline to file is April 18. 

The Ohio History Fund's tax check-off brought in more than $131,000 in 2021, exceeding 2020's total by nearly $12,000. The 2021 grant recipients will be announced at the Statehood Day advocacy event on March 1. Since the Ohio History Fund started in 2012, it's made 94 grants for a total of nearly $870,000. To date, the Ohio History Fund has received 474 grant applications totaling $5.7 million in requests.

Thank you for your support.
