Join & Support

Support our mission of educating the next generation of leaders about government, the importance of civic engagement, and the need for bipartisanship. In honor of Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s 47-year tenure in the United States Senate, you can become a Friend of the Institute for $47 a year. Membership for two is available for $75. Your gift is fully tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

Your membership enables students to come to the Institute for free, stepping into the shoes of a United States Senator for a day. Your support makes it possible for visitors to experience how our government works and understand the importance of each person’s voice in addressing critical issues facing our nation.

With your support, we are able to offer interactive exhibits and engaging programs that bring in diverse speakers for conversations about the need for finding common ground in our democracy.
