Looking for Money for Your History Project?

The Idaho State Historical Society Community Grants program might be for you.  We fund exhibits, publications, educational programs, events, and a variety of other projects; we can help you purchase things like archival supplies and computer hardware and software.  Take a look; see if we can help.

Purpose of Grants

The Idaho State Historical Society aids cultural and historical organizations in preserving, interpreting, and protecting the history and culture of Idaho.  ISHS believes the best way to preserve Idaho’s heritage is through strong partnerships, and with its grants program, assists partner organizations in their projects.
