Ways to GiveWhy do you love Kentucky history?
Is it because of a memorable school field trip to see a Kentucky treasure? Or perhaps a teacher who made a positive impact in your life? Is it because you understand the relationship between the past and the present, and that having knowledge of the past helps us prepare for the future?
Whatever the reasons, the Kentucky Historical Society knows that you love Kentucky history and appreciates your support. Your tax-deductible gift to the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) Foundation will fund exhibits, collections, educational programs and outreach. KHS and the KHS Foundation greatly appreciates all donors and offers many different ways to give.
