History helps us to realize our place in the world and our individual responsibility to our family, neighbors,
community and world. It makes us think about the legacy we will leave. Are there favorite places, ideals, or
programs that you value and that you want to survive for coming generations? Through your will, you have the power
to make changes in the world around you. In fact, our values may not be represented in the world if we don't make

Would you like to make history come to life for students? Transport them through time to historic venues?
Ohio students (K-12) use our innovative long distance learning programs ranging from programs on ice age
glaciers and prehistoric mounds to log cabins and 'safe houses' on the Underground Railroad. Video streaming, remote
cameras, theatrical sets, and period costumes are among the techniques we use to help children learn. We also include
topics to help Ohio students pass the required statewide achievement tests.
Would you like to be involved with students who are producing dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia
documentaries, and research papers on important historical events they choose?
National History Day engages students in creating, researching, analyzing and presenting-skills that will be of value
to them throughout their lives.
Would you like to help Ohio fourth graders (in your neighborhood school or any another Ohio school) attend
educational programs and field trips uniquely designed for them at Ohio Historical sites?
Many schools can no longer afford field trips that offer students an educational opportunity outside the classroom.
Our "transportation scholarships" funded by individuals, corporations, and foundations provide funds for these students
to enjoy history up close and personal.
These are just a few of the many programs at OHS that give students an opportunity to learn about the past and
use that knowledge to transform the quality of their lives to create a better future.
By remembering the Ohio Historical Society in your will you can insure that your values will influence others
after you are gone. Leaving a percentage (or specific dollar amount) of your estate to fund a favorite program at
OHS is easy to do. We would like to help you accomplish that.
