Every year hundreds of teachers ask us if we can donate Pocket Constitutions to their students. We help as many as we can, but we need your help to keep this program alive. We screen each request to make sure it is legitimate by asking for a letter on school letterhead requesting the quantity they need and how they will be used. We also ask that they pay a modest shipping fee to ensure they are fully invested.
When teachers request Pocket Constitutions for their students, we know those teachers care about our country. You can be sure that your gift to students will be received from a teacher that will accompany that gift with passion for our founding documents and a personal invitation to Read It, Know It, and Share It.
Here is just a small sampling of the requests we have received:
"I am so happy to have learned of such an amazing opportunity for high school Social Studies teachers like myself to apply for donations of the United States Constitution from your organization. Certainly having a pocket Constitution would be a spectacular gift to any person, but especially a person sitting in a history class.
"If possible, we are seeking 175 pocket copies of our United States Constitution. May I say, I truly appreciate you providing wonderful resources to teachers who, for the most part, really want the best for our students and awesome country. I am truly trying to show them what an amazing experiment our country was and how it continues to be the freest and finest nation in the world."

"I am a Government and Economics Teacher at [a] High School in Smyrna, GA. I was able to get some of your pocket Constitutions after speaking at one of our local American Legion Chapters. I want to challenge my students (all seniors) to accept my challenge to read the Constitution. Unfortunately, I don't have enough of the pocket Constitutions for all of my students to have one. I am requesting 300 pocket Constitutions in order to have one for each of my students across my three classes."

"I am writing to request 100 pocket Constitutions from Freedom Factor. [My school] is planning a speaker series Constitution Day on September 17-18. This educational program ... will be open to all students and cover the topics of why voting matters to young people .... All students who attend the event, approximately 50 students for each speaker, will be given a free pocket Constitution."
