2023 Building Beyond Annual Appeal

May 5, 2023

I hope this message finds you well. As a valued member of the Ohio Genealogical Society family, I wanted to personally reach out to you to ask for your support for our Building Beyond Annual Campaign. Your generosity enables us to continue our mission of preserving Ohio’s rich genealogical history for future generations.

Thanks to your past contributions, we have been able to make significant improvements to our website, enhancing our online resources for members and visitors alike. We’ve also been able to expand our educational programming with new webinars and virtual events that have allowed us to reach a wider audience across Ohio and beyond.

However, like many others, the rising costs associated with running an organization like ours have presented us with new challenges. We need your help now more than ever to continue our work in preserving and sharing Ohio’s genealogical heritage.

Your donation, no matter how big or small, will make a significant impact on our ability to carry out our mission. Your support will help us to maintain our website, keep our online educational programming up to date, and continue to provide valuable resources for genealogical research.

The Society is constantly working to secure funding from a variety of sources and all contributions of any amount will be greatly appreciated and acknowledged throughout the course of the campaign. All gifts and pledges will be confidential. Any donor may choose to remain anonymous or to donate in memory or honor of someone. Donations may be tax deductible. Donors to the Building Beyond Annual Campaign can also ask their employer if there is an employee-giving matching program. Donations may be spread out and made in monthly payments as well.


The Ohio Genealogical Society is committed to remain a leader and innovator amongst state genealogical societies. You can make this possible with your contribution either online at www.ogs.org/donate; by mail to the Ohio Genealogical Society, 611 State Route 97 W, Bellville, OH 44813-8813; or by phone, 419-886-1903.

Your Society is entirely grateful to you for supporting our commitment to protect and share not only Ohio’s family history resources, but all family resources. Thank you!
