What you can do to help
We get a lot of questions about who we are, how one can join, and
what one can do to help. We are an unincorporated nonprofit
association. See our About
page for details.
First, we are a group of dedicated constitutional
scholar-activists, the numbers and identities of whom are on a
need-to-know basis. Formal voting membership is by invitation
only, and we only invite people to join who have independently
proven their talent and virtue at some personal risk or sacrifice.
We want to remain true to our mission of strict constitutional
compliance, and not to dilute it with anyone who is not on the
We do not publish printed material, or send newsletters out by
mail. We choose to avoid the costs of doing that, and publish
everything in electronic form, mainly over the Internet. It is
more important to develop educational materials, to litigate, to
organize, or to do other things than spend our limited resources
on printing and postage.
We have not solicited, and have not received, financial support
from governments, large institutions, or special interest groups.
That is not to say that we could not use more funding. What we
have done so far has been done by unpaid volunteers. If we had
financial support we could do a lot more and get it done faster.
We know how to put any amount of money to its best possible use,
to leverage the political system in creative ways. We would know
what to do to turn the course of history toward a better future.
What we would do if we received a substantial amount of money is
outlined in our
But we don't want undue influence. If you support what we are
doing, and want to help, we would prefer you send anonymous
donations, which could be as bitcoins. It might be better not know
who you really are, especially if your contributions are very
large. Don't send cash through the mail, of course, but money
orders work. Make checks payable to "Constitution
Society", or to one of our trustees. It
is our principled position that banks on state territory that
denominate in Federal Reserve "dollars" are unconstitutional. On
state territory only gold or silver are constitutional legal
tender, although we would accept certificates for gold or silver.
Donations may or may not be tax-deductible, depending on the
specific project. We regard ourselves as a church, the
Constitutionalist Church, under Sec. 501(c)(4) of the IRC, and
believe our expenditures should all qualify as deductible, but we
do not seek official recognition of any special tax status for the
Constitution Society, because doing so would subject us to
unconstitutional and undue influence by the government. For donors
seeking to deduct, we offer earmarking of substantial donations to
clearly deductible purposes and accounting for how the funds were
used for that purpose.
Donations can be mailed or sent by courier to the main address on
our home page at http://constitution.org/about.htm
, which is

You can also order custom
to spread the word and help us.
Help us by hosting your site with our Host
and we get a referral fee.
If you can't afford to support us financially, do what you can in
other ways. You might organize a local group of activists and
scholars, and link it to others across the nation and beyond. You
might investigate wrongdoing. Recruit whistleblowers. Engage in
litigation. Develop educational materials. Put up a web site
specializing in some problems and their solutions. Render into
digital form some of the works we haven't gotten around to doing
yet. Speak to public gatherings, or set up a speaker's bureau.
Organize street demonstrations. Place ads in newspapers and on
radio or TV. Hand out flyers. Call in to talk radio with a focused
reform message. Develop your skills. Acquire the tools you will
We can offer some guidance in doing these things, but it is up to
you to do it. If nothing else, you can go door to door in your own
neighborhood. Be persistent. Never give up. Just devote a couple
of hours each day, and get others to do the same.
Remember, it has taken more than two centuries for the situation
to deteriorate to the point it is at today. We won't reverse that
decline quickly, and no one can do it by himself. Aim for small
victories. Every person you recruit for the cause of reform is a
victory. Many of them will drop out, but if we can recruit them
faster than they drop out, we will eventually prevail.
