The Massachusetts Society is an educational nonprofit corporation (501(c)3) that seeks to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, the value of American citizenship, and the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We decorate the graves of patriots of the Revolutionary War. We support excellence in teaching of American history. We participate in patriotic observances. We support research and preservation of historic material on the men and women who fought for Independence. We reward our future leaders - our children - for excellence and outstanding citizenship.
The National Congress in 2016 in Boston is a significant opportunity for us in New England. Participate in our national committees, attend seminars on genealogy and state offices, and meet members and leaders from across our nation and continents.
As part of a national effort, the society offers contests with cash awards to encourage youth to think creatively about the principles of our nation. We focus on elementary through high school students, Eagle Scouts, ROTC cadets, and teachers of American history.
We are proud to recognize members who served in the U.S. Armed Forces or other forces allied with the United States as well as the exceptional acts of citizens and public servants for their contributions to the community.
Our Eagle Scout Recognition & Scholarship Program is open to young men who achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. A commemorative certificate is available to scoutmasters and parents free to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of new eagle scouts.
