Friends of the Society - Part One Membership

“Friends” has been established to recognize those who bring honour to their Carter heritage by their significant contributions in furtherance of the mission of The Carter Society, or by their extraordinary accomplishments in society at-large; individuals, organizations or corporate interests who provide notable financial or material support of the goals of The Carter Society.

This is the first step in for members with Carter descendants who have not as yet established their Virginia heritage in the Colonial period prior to 1776.

It is also a category for non-descendants, such as spouses of members and other interested parties who wish to participate and benefit from Society.

Children of the Society

Children or other descendants of members who are under eighteen years of age will receive special recognition at events they may attend with the Society member. Upon request by any Society member, a special invitation to membership will be extended to their child, grandchild, or other descendant upon reaching their eighteenth.



Membership in the Carter Society is by formal application to the address below and accompanied by the $100.00 application fee and it includes 1st year’s annual dues.

The new membership fee for Friends is now only $35.00 and it includes 1st year’s annual dues.
