Why give to KHS?
Back in 1836, a group of forward-thinking citizens publicly acknowledged history’s power by founding the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) and charging it with protecting the Commonwealth’s legacy. Since then KHS staff, members and partners have worked non-stop to preserve Kentucky’s treasures and to empower Kentuckians by helping them understand what a vital role our state has played in shaping the nation.
We invite you to join us in this mission. One easy way to participate is through a tax-deductible gift to the Kentucky Historical Society Foundation. Your gift will help KHS make our collections accessible to the public, teach Kentucky students important critical thinking skills by engaging them in the historical process, raise awareness of local history resources throughout the commonwealth, preserve our heritage – and demonstrate what it means to be a Kentuckian.
