The American Indian Fund goes beyond the scholarship needs of the American Indian community to provide funding for Bacone College, Chemawa Indian School, Indian Youth of America Summer Camp as well as to provide financial assistance grants for facilities, student needs, educational programs and opportunities.
The American Indian Fund pin may be purchased and worn by all members who make a donation of at least $200 to the American Indian Fund. Interested members must make a single donation to the American Indian Fund or become a Sustaining Supporter by designating monthly donations to the American Indian Fund. Only when the minimum $200 donation is reached by either donation method can this pin be purchased. Approval is required to purchase this pin.
When this donor pin is worn by DAR members on the official Insignia ribbon, it must be placed according to the most current "Placement of DAR Insignia and Pins on Official Ribbon" document found on the Insignia Committee webpage.
When not worn on the official ribbon, DAR members may only wear this donation pin as a brooch, not on a right-side ribbon. When non-members wear this donation pin, they should demonstrate pride in all DAR stands for by wearing it only when dressed nicely and in a respectful manner.
This gold-filled pin measures 1" x 1 1/8". The feather dangles measure 1/2" x 1/4".
The NSDAR American Indians Committee is entrusted to the continuing education of the history and culture of this community as well as the support of the educational and cultural pursuits of its citizens. For more information, please visit the American Indians Committee webpage.
