The Capitol Committee

The Capitol Committee is a group of over 110 Corporations, Associations, and Foundations that support the mission of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society through unrestricted donations. Leading companies join the Capitol Committee’s Leadership Council with annual charitable contributions of $25,000 or more.

This funding provides crucial operational and program support that allows us to maintain and expand our educational programs, such as our We the People Constitution Tour™ program. This immersive tour serves approximately 1,400 D.C. middle school students annually and provides a unique and impactful learning experience, particularly for students from historically underserved communities.

Your Involvement

Are you, your company, or your organization looking for a unique way to demonstrate the significance of your charitable and civic responsibility to a broad national audience? Your participation, along with that of leading companies on the Capitol Committee, is the flagship of our support. With your help, the Capitol building and what it stands for are brought to life in a way that touches the lives and minds of millions. Become a leader and help us keep the United States Capitol and our democracy a beacon for the world.

Our Mission

Since 1962, the U.S. Capitol Historical Society has proudly worked to preserve and share the history of the Capitol, the Congress, and the people who work therein. As a nonpartisan, educational 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Society was chartered by Congress, in part, “to foster and increase an informed patriotism.”

In service of this mission, the Society conducts historical tours of the Capitol Building, hosts virtual and in-person public history programming, publishes scholarly research about Capitol History, coordinates an online civics education digital resource hub, manages a renowned civics education field trip for D.C. public school students, sponsors research fellowships, and commissions works of fine art for the Capitol collections.
