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.

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!
It’s 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.
*Up to 8 different funds, $5 minimum per fund, per month
