Support Our Work

Donate to the OHA Endowment Fund

Your tax-deductible donation to the OHA endowment helps the organization grow. The endowment helps to fund OHA publications, scholarships to the OHA annual meeting, and special projects.

Why donate to the Oral History Association?

The OHA Endowment Fund was established in the 1980s to provide a strong financial foundation for the association. Donations to the Oral History Association support the organization in multiple ways. Donations fund travel grants for international scholars, fund our various awards; and support the organization’s operating costs. We will gratefully acknowledge your gift in our yearly conference program. The OHA is a 501(c)3 organization and all or part of your donation may be tax deductible.

There are multiple ways you can give:

Membership Renewal:

When you renew your membership, consider making a donation to the Endowment to support the organization’s ongoing work.

The Day of Giving:

In late August, the organization holds a one-day fundraising campaign centered around one theme. One year, it funded a diversity scholarship. Last year, it funded our Indigenous Initiative.

Volunteer Service:

The annual conference is a time-intensive project and we welcome all who are willing to give of their time to the event. Those who work five hours are given complimentary registration.

In Memoriam:

Consider making a donation in memory of an active or past member of the Oral History Association.

Legacy Gifts, Planned Giving and Estate Donations:

Help ensure the future of the Oral History Association through a deferred gift. Planned giving may include a bequest to the organization in your will, making the OHA a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, or other deferred contributions. Contact the Executive Office at oha@oralhistory.org for more information.
