Friends of the First Amendment Society

When you give to the Newseum, you are making a powerful commitment to increasing public understanding of the importance of a free press and the First Amendment.

The Friends of the First Amendment Society is the Newseum and Freedom Forum Institute’s premier giving society for donors who contribute $1,000 or more each year.

See a list of members here. Large print and braille versions of the list are available by calling 202/292-6557.
