Membership Information

The Ulysses S. Grant Association relies on its friends. Federal funding and university support are supplemented by the generous help of its members across the country and abroad. When you become a member of the Grant Association, you aid important work to better illuminate not only Grant himself, but a period in U. S. history when the country stood on the brink of the modern era, facing new and difficult challenges.

For a one-time, tax-deductible $200 contribution, you, too, can become a lifetime member of the Ulysses S. Grant Association. Membership entitles you to a 25% discount on the thirty volumes of The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant and The Personal Memoirs of Julia Dent Grant, both published by Southern Illinois University Press.

In addition, members are invited to attend our annual meetings (held in April or May). These gatherings are intended to acknowledge the contributions of our members and to foster a community of interest in Grant's life and times. In the past, the Association has met in a variety of cities and studied and toured to gain greater insight into important aspects of the life of Ulysses S. Grant. Additional information about upcoming meetings can be found on our Annual Meetings page.
