NSDAR General Fund: area of Greatest Need

Thank you for helping us accomplish so much. The support of the NSDAR General Fund by dedicated Daughters like you provides the necessary funding for the National Society to furnish the staff and infrastructure that aids, encourages and promotes the work of our members.

It All Begins With People!

  • Daughters like YOU! All of this work is made possible because of YOUR commitment, YOUR involvement and YOUR support in our National Society.
  • Our librarians and archivists who spend their valuable time serving more than 4,000 members and guests each year, helping to uncover stories of patriotism and heroism deep within each family’s history.
  • Our historians and museum docents who eagerly share their knowledge with thousands of visitors and school groups who come to see the exhibits in our DAR Museum and the Americana Collection each year.
  • Genealogical researchers from across the country who avail themselves, both in person and online, of one of the largest genealogical libraries in the country.
  • And the countless others at our National Headquarters who support the important work of Daughters like you in so many ways!

Gifts to the General Fund provide immediate support for the day-to-day operations of NSDAR Headquarters. Your contributions ensure that we can keep the lights on and the doors open for the nearly 18,000 visitors that we host annually. These donations also help us protect and care for more than 30,000 historic portraits, photographs, documents and other precious artifacts by providing precise temperature and moisture levels to preserve the delicate treasures entrusted to our care.
