Membership in the Kennedy Society costs $35.00 initially for residents of the U.S. and Canada; that amount comprises a $10.00 application fee plus the first year‘s dues of $25.00. (Note: The $10 application fee is waived if you join the Society on the spot at a Kennedy clan tent!) Thereafter, annual dues for North American members are $25.00, payable by the fiscal year July 1st through June 30th. Members who live outside North America pay $40.00 in the first year and $30.00 annually thereafter.
Lifetime membership: You can make a one-time payment that satisfies the annual Kennedy Society dues for the rest of your life. The Lifetime membership payment options are:
- For members under 60 years of age: $400
- For members 60 years of age and older: $300
Membership dues are deductible for U.S. income tax purposes.
Kennedy Society members receive the Kennedy Gazette, the official newsletter of the Society, which is published four times a year.
Click here for a membership application form that you can print out. The application is in Portable Document Format (PDF), which requires a viewer such as the well-known Adobe Reader or the smaller and faster Foxit Reader to view. Both of these viewers are FREE.
The Kennedy Society also is in the process of compiling a Kennedy genealogy database for Kennedy Society members. If you would like to contribute your Kennedy family history information to this database, please print and fill out the ancestral chart (a PDF document) and include it with your membership application. Note: Only your Kennedy lineage needs to be included on the chart.
Send the application and ancestral chart to:

If paying by check, please make checks payable to Kennedy Society of NA.
You can pay your membership dues by credit card using PayPal. For new memberships, please still send in a printed application form so that we have all of your membership information on file. Just note on the form that you paid your dues using PayPal.
