Fundraising Campaign: President General’s Project

President General's Project

Dear Member,

I am so proud of all the work that the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is able to do through the steadfast support of Daughters like you!

Daughters are making a real difference in our communities each and every day. Through Celebrate America! you donated almost 4 million hours of community service in 2014. As proud as we are of your volunteer service, there are many other ways in which you are making a difference in communities across the nation.

Because of your unwavering support of the President General’s Project, NSDAR is able to fund important historic preservation, educational and patriotic initiatives through the Special Projects Grants Program. These initiatives, funded through donations to the President General’s Project, have an immediate impact on communities across the country.

Support of the President General’s Project not only allows us to restore our beautiful complex of historic buildings, it also allows us to preserve vital documents and records, support our returning veterans, donate books to literacy programs, install flagpoles to fly the American flag at national sites, and much, much more in support of our chapters and states.

In order to continue providing funds for these vital initiatives, we need your help. Would you consider supporting the President General’s Project with a donation today?

Support from generous Daughters like you has allowed us to fund some truly extraordinary projects. One historic preservation grant recipient was The Kump House, a 26-room Neo-Federal Revival style home built for the Herman Kump family in 1924 that is now home to an important regional education center. Mrs. Kump and her daughters were members of the John Hart Chapter, Elkins, W.Va.

This property now serves the needs of the community and provides a valuable resource for local teachers. When extensive water damage caused the walls to buckle, threatening the collapse of one corner of the historic property, this grant—made possible by your support—provided the necessary funds to fix the problem.

As you can imagine, there are so many wonderful opportunities before us. With your support in the months and years ahead, we will continue to:

  • Advance our technological capabilities in support of history, education and patriotism;
  • Restore and improve our historic buildings;
  • Promote membership;
  • Enhance awareness of the DAR and our valuable assets; and
  • Fund additional community grants for historic preservation, education and patriotism.

And of course, this year our beloved National Society will celebrate its Quasquicentennial—125 years of devoted service to the nation. As we reflect on past accomplishments, and on our Founders and all those visionary women who worked diligently through the years to preserve our American heritage and way of life, let us commit ourselves to preserving these important ideals for future generations.

It is a time for recognizing members of today’s DAR—those who continue to give generously and unselfishly of themselves to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. It is also a marvelous opportunity to raise public awareness of DAR and the positive impact our organization has had in this country for 125 years.

Please give generously to the President General’s Project, so that we can continue to help fund important grants, and all President General’s Project initiatives, that will preserve our country’s beloved heritage for generations to come!

Celebrate America!

Lynn Forney Young
President General
