The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution will again offer matching funds grants to organizations designated 501(c)(3) public charity entities with an EIN, employee identification number.

Interested groups must be sponsored by a local DAR chapter, submit a copy of their 501(c)(3) documentation, and include a narrative that describes the need and urgency of the project, as well as, the planned activities and benefits to the community, which will result from the implementation of this grant if approved.
