Current Funding Priorities

Mission-Critical Support

Gifts designated for mission-critical expenses pay for daily operations, new accessions, and other ongoing costs. They directly support the State Historical Society of Missouri's efforts to collect, protect, and share the history of Missouri.

Newspaper Collection

The Newspaper Collection is SHSMO's most frequently used documentary resource. The foundation for many family and local histories, it is believed to be the largest collection of state newspapers in the nation. Gifts to the Newspaper Collection support its continued preservation and growth.

Art Collection

With over a century of success, strategic additions to the Missouri regional art collection inspire a higher level of appreciation for Missouri’s artists, including premier artists Thomas Hart Benton and George Caleb Bingham.

Missouri Historical Review

The premier quarterly journal of Missouri history has been in continuous publication since 1906 and now reaches SHSMO members and research libraries from England to California.

National History Day in Missouri

Missouri's National History Day contest promotes history education in schools throughout the state and attracts several thousand young participants each year. NHD teaches students in grades six through twelve how to conduct primary research and present their findings.
