Thank you for your interest in supporting the Knoxville History Project.
KHP relies on support from readers like you to research, preserve, and promote the unique history of Knoxville, a city whose past makes it distinct from all other places. We publish new compelling stories and create historical experiences that are memorable, educational, and relevant to the city’s future.
KHP seeks general support to fund our ongoing programming. Contributions of any size truly make a difference to allow KHP to cover new ground and make Knoxville history more accessible for everyone.
Talks and Tours: KHP serves Knoxville residents and visitors through engaging educational programs, both in-person and online through Zoom. Our programs illuminate the city’s past, incorporating new research and previously untold stories covering a broad range of subjects, presented by KHP staff and guest presenters.
Research Projects: KHP works with individuals, developers, property owners, government departments, and community-based organizations to research and produce new narratives expanding awareness and a better understanding of the city’s complex past.
“The Scruffy Citizen:” Freshly researched articles highlight a diverse variety of relevant but little-known stories from Knoxville’s past, shared with KHP supporters and then posted online.
Knoxville History Online: KHP’s website offers a comprehensive online resource, including stories, historic sites, image galleries, videos, podcasts, maps, and our online store.
Knoxville Shoebox: We encourage community members to share photographs, brochures, and illustrations to be permanently archived for historical use.
Library Readership: To serve the general public, we produce hardback versions of KHP publications through the Knox County Public Library system.

Corporate Matching Gifts
If you’ve recently made a contribution to KHP (and we sincerely thank you!) or if you are planning on making one soon, ask your employer if they have a matching gift program. You might be surprised to learn that your employee may match your gift up to a certain dollar amount which could mean doubling the impact of your gift to KHP.
If your employer requires information from KHP to be included in such a program please contact our Development Director, Paul James, at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help. Thank you.
