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:
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.
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.
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.
