Sustaining Supporters are Daughters, Chapters and friends of DAR who are some of our most dedicated advocates. Sustaining Supporters care deeply about investing in the work of DAR and do so by contributing each month through automatic monthly gifts via electronic funds transfer (EFT) from their bank account or a credit card charge.

Become a SUSTAINING SUPPORTER today! Click the "Sign-up NOW" button to sign up online – it’s safe, secure and easy to do. Or call the Office of Development at 800-449-1776 to sign up over the phone. (Note: the “Donate Now” area to the right is for one-time donations only, and will not sign you up as a Sustaining Supporter.)

EFT is A Great Option!

Sign up for electronic funds transfer (EFT) from your bank account. Having funds directed from your bank account not only helps avoid issues with changing credit card account numbers and expiration dates, but the EFT option allows DAR to process monthly donations WITHOUT incurring credit card processing fees. This means that more of your gift goes to support the vital programs YOU choose.

Already a Sustainer? You can also switch from credit cards to EFT any time. CLICK HERE to access the Sustainer Portal to make the change yourself, or call us at (800) 449-1776 to make the switch to EFT over the phone.

Why Become a Sustaining Supporter?

Your monthly gift provides DAR the necessary resources to continuously support and grow our mission of preserving history for today and tomorrow. Your monthly donation provides a reliable source of revenue to ensure that our nation’s stories are told for generations to come. When you become a Sustaining Supporter, you gain the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference for so many each and every day!

Signing up as a Sustaining Supporter makes donating to NSDAR simple and convenient! Plus, you tailor your commitment to meet your needs. Give at one of the suggested levels or create your own by selecting how much you would like to contribute each month. As a Sustaining Supporter, you are also able to divide your monthly gift between any number of different funds.* As an added benefit, if you choose to support the General Fund through your monthly gifts, your Sustaining Supporter contributions could qualify you for recognition in the 1890 Annual Giving Circle.
