The DAR Special Projects Grants Program provides financial support to projects in local communities that exemplify the mission of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. To accomplish this, NSDAR will make grants available to fund initiatives in these three mission areas.
Examples of grant funding include:
- Historic Preservation
- Restoration of historic buildings or sites
- Preservation of documents or records, including cataloging and digitalization
- Conservation of cemetery monuments or gravesites
- Erection of historic site markers
- Museum exhibits
- Interpretive display panels
- Children’s mentoring programs
- Donation of books or resource materials for tutoring or literacy programs
- Military cemetery restoration
- Oral history of active military or veterans
- Flagpole installation to fly the American flag at a national site
- Erection of monument to veterans
Funding for these grants is provided through the President General’s Project.
Only public charity 501(c)(3) entities may apply. Only one grant funding will be awarded to an entity during any consecutive three year period.
Grants of $1,000 - $2,000 are encouraged, with a maximum amount of $10,000. Applicants are required to match the grant award 1:1 in order to allow for broader distribution of funds. Matching funds are not required to originate with the organization applying for the grant, but may originate with multiple donors or completed fundraising.
