What is the 917 Society?
The 917 Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization passionate about encouraging young people to know the rights given to them by the U.S. Constitution as citizens. As a not-for-profit organization with tax-exempt status, we do not align with, endorse, or support any particular political candidate, organization, party, or platform. We support our Constitution and the democratic process and encourage civic engagement. Any accolades made in favor of the 917 Society are not solicited politically.
Our organization is made up of people who care about our country. Our mission is to provide a lasting, durable pocket Constitution for every 8th grader in the United States free of charge in honor of September 17th - Constitution Day.
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. We don’t receive federal or state funds and rely on concerned citizens like you to contribute to offering this program to our teachers and students free of charge.
We also offer a program to celebrate Constitution Day each September 17th FREE to our teachers and students, also funded by donations.
Join the 917 Society and help place a copy of the U.S. Constitution in the hands of our next generation. Spark a fire so they know their rights, voice, and Constitution. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY GETTING INVOLVED. Donate or volunteer (you or your organization) to deliver Constitutions to 8th-grade classrooms in your area or both.
We welcome all who love our country and our Constitution to join this movement because we must all work together to preserve what makes our country great.
