Make a lasting impact on Constitutional education
Make a contribution today to support Freedom Rising and your gift will be matched by a generous $100,000 challenge grant from the Hamilton Family Foundation. Your support, combined with matching funds from the Hamilton Family Foundation, will help us provide more opportunities for people of all ages to visit the National Constitution Center, experience Freedom Rising, and see themselves as active participants in our unfolding Constitutional history.

Freedom Rising is the longest running show in Philadelphia and has been seen by more than 8 million visitors to the National Constitution Center from around the world.  Freedom Rising has also been performed at the White House, the Gerald R. Ford Museum, and college campuses across the country.

Support Freedom Rising - Name a chair in the Sidney Kimmel Theater
You can support Freedom Rising and have a significant impact on our mission of constitutional education by becoming a Member, increasing your annual contribution, or making an additional gift today. Your gift of $2,500 or more will name one chair in the 350 seat Sidney Kimmel Theater where Freedom Rising is performed. Your generous gift of $4,500 will name two chairs. Donors of $2,500 or more will also be recognized as a member of the 1787 Society.

Freedom Rising transcends partisanship and eloquently reminds all Americans of the constitutional values that unite us. Narrated by a live actor, it tells the story of the American quest for freedom through more than 200 years of constitutional history—and sets the stage for the exploration of America’s Founding Documents illuminated in the Centers’ exhibits, including The Story of We the People, and Constituting Liberty: From the Declaration to the Bill of Rights.

Double the Impact of your Gift
Your new or increased gift in any amount will be matched by the Hamilton Family Foundation, support Freedom Rising programming, and will ensure that Freedom Rising continues to inspire visitors about the meaning of the Constitution for decades to come.  Donate Now
