Thank you for visiting the NSDAR Donation Wish List section. If you or someone you know could make a special gift to provide any of these requested needs, which cannot be met by the annual operating budget, we would be most appreciative.
In order to make your donation choices easier, we have grouped the Wish Lists by function. The DAR Library section identifies the books on their wish list; the DAR Museum section provides the DAR Museum Collecting Policy and Wish List, the DAR Museum Give-A-Book List, and the DAR Museum Adopt-an-Object List; and the General Wish List includes needs that are more general in nature.
Please note: Before choosing a possible gift of one of these items, please consult the Development Director
by telephone at (202) 879-3343, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, to ensure that the gift has not already
been obtained from another donor. Thank you for supporting DAR National Headquarters!
