NSDAR General Fund

Contributions account for a significant percentage of the NSDAR operating budget, so giving to the General Fund regularly makes an enormous difference in our work. Collectively your donations help to support one of the world’s largest buildings of its kind owned and maintained exclusively by women—by you and so many other dedicated Daughters. It belongs to each and every one of us.  It is our heritage—and all of this is made possible through member support. The NSDAR General Fund truly is our “area of greatest need.”

President General's Message to Daughters: WINTER 2017

Dear Member,

As a dedicated Daughter, I am writing to you about an ongoing need — the NSDAR General Fund. This fund plays an important role in our ability to carry out our mission, including support of the DAR Library, DAR Museum and the Americana Collection.

As you may be aware, operating our national Headquarters is an expensive undertaking. The General Fund truly is our “area of greatest need” as it also pays for our utilities, furnishes support for our building and the grounds and provides for the safety and security of our buildings and artifacts with 24/7 monitoring by our security team as well as the promotion of NSDAR and our many programs and services. Our phone and internet access, website maintenance, heating and cooling, postage and many other basic, yet essential, requirements are all covered by the General Fund.

Annual dues and other revenue only cover two-thirds of these expenses. The rest is provided by the generous contributions of members like you. Please consider making a gift today to the General Fund to provide immediate support for the day-to-day operations of our Headquarters — just click the “GIVE NOW” button at the top of this page, or make your donation a monthly gift by becoming a Sustaining Supporter.

If you wish to order DAR Return Address Labels, please fill out THIS FORM and send us your donation AND THE FORM in the mail. Or call the Office of Development during office hours (M-F, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to place your order over the phone.

Your support of the General Fund keeps our doors open and our Headquarters staff available to assist members, guests and visitors each and every day. You help us preserve the legacy of your Patriot ancestors through our many programs and activities.

I look forward to working with you in this promising new year as we continue Moving Forward in Service to America

Sincerely,

Ann Turner Dillon
President General
