ISHS History Preservation and Educational Programs Fund

History Preservation and Education Programs Fund donations are used specifically to support the creation of new exhibits, education programs, important projects, and special events. Your gifts are crucial as only about half of the ISHS's budget comes from the State of Idaho. Help ensure that history continues to come full circle through a gift to the Idaho State Historical Society. Print our tax-deductible gift form here to support history in Idaho today!

Contributions to ISHS are tax deductible and may qualify for the Idaho Education Tax Credit. Please contact your financial advisor for more details.   

Tribute or Memorial Gifts

Recognize friends or family in an especially meaningful way while at the same time supporting the educational programs, collections and mission of the Idaho State Historical Society.
