Third Century Circle

The Third Century Circle of the Illinois State Historical Society honors donors, both living and deceased, who have connected their legacy to ours through a contribution to the ISHS endowment fund. Donations to the endowment provide perpetual income to the ISHS and allow investments to grow in value, thereby providing increased income to the ISHS far into the future.

The Third Century Circle invites donors who will pledge in-hand or deferred donations to the Society’s endowment fund to ensure that ISHS continues to further understanding, research, preservation, and recognition of history in Illinois for generations to come.

Cumulative in-hand or deferred contributions of $2,500 or more to the Society’s endowment fund qualifies a donor for perpetual membership in the Legacy Alliance. The Society can structure gift agreements to fit your needs.
