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

In honor of Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s 47-year tenure in the United States Senate, gifts of $47 to the EMK Fund are recognized as Friends of the Institute.

Friends receive a membership card providing free admission for one year and 10% off in our gift shop.

Friends support the EMK Institute and its mission of educating the public about the United States Senate, encouraging participatory democracy, invigorating public discourse, and inspiring the next generation of civic leaders.

Friends are valued partners in our efforts to provide all visitors with a one of a kind, high-tech, high touch, active learning experience.

Thanks to your support we are able to offer free field trips to Massachusetts school groups and free admission to all active military personnel.
