Corporate Membership Benefits

For decades, contributions to the U.S. Capitol Historical Society have played a significant role in supporting the Society’s tradition of service to the Washington D.C. community, the United States, and the world. The yearly contributions of Capitol Committee members enable the Society to make the Capitol more accessible to young people, provide resources for teachers, promote academic research, and raise awareness of our democratic heritage. Capitol Committee members receive exclusive benefits to recognize their vital contributions as a token of our gratitude for their commitment.
