Daughters of the American Revolution: Historic Preservation GrantsDeadline: December 31, 2019
Since its founding in 1890, the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has supported historic preservation as one of its three main mission areas (along with patriotism and education). In tens of thousands of locations around the world, the DAR has saved historic properties, erected historic markers, digitized documents, and helped to preserve the American story in thousands of meaningful ways.
The DAR Historic Preservation Grants provide financial assistance for projects that preserve historic resources, sites, and other history-related projects. Examples include restoration of historic buildings; digitization or preservation of documents/records; preservation of historical items/artifacts; erection of new or rededication/relocation of existing historical markers; cemetery headstone and monument conservation; etc. Preference is provided to projects related to the Colonial-through-the-Federal period, but those from all chapters of American history are eligible to apply.
Amount: $250,000 is available. The maximum grant is $10,000, and smaller projects are encouraged.
Eligibility: Public charity 501(c)(3) entities. Each application must be accompanied by a DAR chapter or state organization sponsorship letter.
