The 1890 Annual Giving Circle commemorates the founding of the NSDAR by recognizing those who give to the General Fund, allowing NSDAR to allocate funds to the areas of greatest need. Those who give $500 or more to the NSDAR General Fund during a fiscal year—January 1 through December 31—are recognized in the 1890 Annual Giving Circle.
Your gifts to the General Fund make a difference in every room of our Society’s home. These donations are integral to providing the day-to-day care, staffing and security necessary to maintain one of the largest buildings owned and operated exclusively by women. Member contributions account for a significant percentage of the NSDAR operating budget, so giving—and giving every year—makes an enormous difference.
Membership is based on the NSDAR Fiscal Year, from January 1st through December 31st.
All donations to the NSDAR General Fund may qualify including:
- All online donations to the General Fund,
- All Matching Gift amounts designated to the NSDAR General Fund by the current or former employer of you or your spouse, including payroll deductions,
- All donations to the General Fund received through the mail, in person (State Conferences and Congress) or over the phone at (800) 449-1776,
