We need your help!
Each year, history organizations around the state ask me if there are grant funds available to help Kentucky’s museums and local history organizations. Sadly, in the past, these grant funds have been few and far between.
Now, however, we can change that!
Your next Kentucky state income tax return will allow you to donate part of your tax refund to Kentucky’s Local History Trust Fund. This money will create a grant pool that will help museums, libraries, and local history organizations in your community. The Kentucky Historical Society will administer these grants, which will help build organizational capacity, support programs and services, and strengthen these organizations.
By donating to this fund you will help museums and local history organizations around the state!
However, we need your help!
First, on your next Kentucky state income tax return, please donate to the Local History Trust Fund.
Second, please help us spread the word! Include information about this program in your organizational newsletter. Repeat the message throughout the year. Tell your volunteers, board members, visitors, and members about the Local History Trust Fund and how it can help your organization. Ask them to help spread the word!
The more people who donate, the more money we can grant out to help the state’s history organizations. Please become a vocal advocate for the Local History Trust Fund and help us assist museums and local history organizations around the state.
While we will be sending out additional information soon, we wanted to start spreading the word as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Again, the more people who know, the more organizations we can help. Please help us spread the word about Kentucky’s Local History Trust Fund!
