What is the 917 Society?

The 917 Society is an organization made up of people who care about our country. Anyone can join The 917 Society and help us ensure our youth are educated and celebrate our Constitution.  We provide a lasting, durable pocket Constitution for every 8th grader in America free of charge in honor of September 17th - Constitution Day - as a "rite of passage" as they grow in citizenship. We work all year to develop videos, film and educational material to provide this annual program to honor and celebrate our Constitution and citizenship.

We the people of The 917 Society realize how vital it is to help our young people understand their rights and find their voice in the freedom the Constitution has given all Americans. Since we don't receive federal or state funds, we must rely on concerned citizens, like you, to contribute in order to offer this program to our teachers and students free of charge.

We are so grateful for all our individual and corporate donors and the support they give to help us reach our goal! 

You can join the 917 Society today for a small $25 donation that will place 10 Constitutions into the hands of our youth. Donation of $100 or more will fulfill our mission to reach as many schools and classrooms as possible.
