Falls Foundation announces Challenge Grant

CLARKSVILLE —

The Falls of the Ohio Foundation on Tuesday announced it received a $500,000 Challenge Grant from the James Graham Brown Foundation in Louisville for its Crossroads Campaign for New Exhibits. 

The grant is a two-to-one challenge, and for every $2 the foundation raises, the James Graham Brown Foundation will match it with $1. The challenge runs through the end of November. 

The Crossroads Campaign for New Exhibits is a $5.5 million campaign to redesign and replace the permanent exhibits at the Falls of the Ohio State Park Interpretive Center. The exhibit design phase has been completed and the project is now in its final fundraising phase. 

This project will bring the exhibits in line with contemporary museum practices and standards for the 21st Century student, family and visitor by emphasizing the immersive experience, according to a Falls of the Ohio Foundation press release. State-of-the-art, interactive exhibits will chronicle the region’s scientific, cultural and natural history with the interpretive themes “An Ancient Sea,” “A Changing Land,” “Converging Cultures” and “The Falls Today.” 

To find out how you can help the Falls of the Ohio Foundation with the challenge, call 812-283-4999.
