NSDAR General Fund: Area of Greatest Need

Contributions account for a significant percentage of the NSDAR operating budget, so giving to the General Fund regularly makes an enormous difference in our work.

The General Fund has played a crucial role in our ability to carry out our mission. 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 tens of thousands of members, visitors and guests 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 round-the-clock security and precise temperature and moisture levels at all times to preserve these delicate treasures. 

In short, your gift to the NSDAR General Fund is the “life blood” of this organization and helps to move our work forward.
