Donate to AASLH

If you’ve never given to AASLH, now is the time. Consider a $5, $10, or $20 donation, and with your support, we can go further and do more. 

Donations to our Annual Fund allow us to be responsive to the history community’s needs. Donations power new continuing education programs, efforts to improve diversity and inclusiveness, and help us to promote the relevance of history.

As we prepare for the future, we are filled with excitement. The creativity and passion of AASLH members is evident in every interaction, every email, and every phone call. You provide energy and inspiration the way nothing else can, and AASLH is proud to be your home for history.

Help us continue our work by making a donation to the Annual Fund.

Other Giving Opportunities


Contributions to the AASLH Endowment assure the longevity of the organization and provide annual earned income to help sustain programs and operations. Donations are invested to achieve a balance of long-term security and the more immediate budgetary needs of AASLH in providing leadership and support for its members who preserve and interpret state and local history.

History Leadership Institute Scholarships

The History Leadership Institute offers two forms of scholarship assistance to help defray the cost of attendance for associates admitted to the class. The Denny O’Toole Scholarship funds need-based scholarships that cover the full cost of attendance, often for associates from small institutions. The Diversity Scholarship helps the program maintain a wide range of backgrounds and experiences among each class. See our program page for more details on the History Leadership Institute.

Small Museums Scholarship Fund

The Small Museums Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for individuals employed by small museums to attend the AASLH Annual Meeting.
