Introducing Friends of the Institute

As a tribute to Senator Kennedy's 47-year career, gifts of $47 and up recognize you as a Friend of the Institute.

Join & Support

Gifts to the Annual Fund deliver unrestricted, current use dollars to support exhibits and programs where the need is most urgent, and to maintain your favorite exhibits, offer free field trips to school groups, deliver educational programming for visitors of all ages, and provide ongoing support for the state-of-the-art technological needs of our Columbia Point facility.

Your donation ensures that we will be able to inspire the next generation of leaders.

The Annual Fund is a vital part of the Institute’s effort to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience to all our visitors. Your gift immediately goes to work inspiring students to a life of public service, engaging adult learners, and providing curriculum and resources for educators. Gifts to the Annual Fund are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

We could not create innovative educational programs, like our Senate Immersion Module (SIM), or offer diverse, thought-provoking programs in our Getting to the Point and Across the Aisle series without your support.

Donations of $110 fully sponsor one student to participate in the award-winning Senate Immersion Module (SIM), including curriculum resources and lesson plans for teachers leading up to the field trip and the experience itself in our Senate Chamber.

The Institute is a national center of bipartisan learning and engagement that takes advantage of cutting-edge technology to provide visitors with a personalized experience that provides a unique vantage point of the legislative process and a training ground for an active and responsible democracy. Donations to the Annual Fund allow the Institute to further these key priorities.
