Why Donate?

The OHA Endowment Fund was established in the 1980's to provide a strong financial foundation for the association. Thanks to generous donations by members and careful management, the Fund has grown to a value of more than $430,000 in 2017.

Endowment contributions fund scholarships to the OHA annual meeting. Each year, OHA helps students, community historians,  international scholars, and others with travel expenses so that the annual conference can serve as a gathering place for all who are interested in oral history. OHA gives over $11,000 each year in scholarships funded through the Endowment.

The Endowment Fund is also available to fund special projects that are approved by Council, giving OHA the ability to undertake special initiatives in a timely way. 

Thank you for contributing so that OHA can continue its mission as the principal membership organization for people committed to the value of oral history!
