The Illinois State Historical Society is working to preserve history in the state, and holds several fundraisers throughout the year to help financially back their mission. The group publishes two history related publications, as well as supports students of history through scholarships, and local historical societies with projects they may have.
Gwen Podeschi with the Illinois State Historical Society appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to help share the mission of the ISHS. One way they try to promote Illinois history is through various publications, such as their Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society.
The ISHS also gives scholarships to students of history, as well as supporting local historical societies.
