Share the American Journey
Join the Society for the National Archives

The Foundation for the National Archives invites you to join The Society for the National Archives.

Citizens from across the nation have demonstrated their belief that the stories of the American experience, carefully preserved by our National Archives, must be told. Society members play a leadership role in combating historical illiteracy, awakening in citizens a yearning to use primary sources to learn more about our great American journey, and to celebrate our shared history.

Society members make an annual charitable gift of $5,000 or more to the Foundation for the National Archives.
