ISHS Annual Fund

Each year the Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) conducts an Annual Giving Campaign.  Contributions to ISHS for the campaign are tax deductible and provide vitally important funds that help keep the Society operating at the level of excellence.

Annual Giving Fund donations are used specifically to support the creation of new exhibits, education programs, important projects, and special events.  Help ensure that history continues to come full circle through a gift to the Idaho State Historical Society Annual Fund. Make a tax-deductible gift for general operating need today.

Tribute or Memorial Gifts

The “Historic Gem Circle” is a special group of corporations and foundations who contribute at a significant level.  Private support is crucial to the Society’s vitality, and this circle of friends provides the base of this support. Their leadership and support, along with ISHS members, make the Society one of the largest history organization in Idaho.
