As part of the celebration of our nation's 250th anniversary, DAR will honor the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence through the DAR Pathway of the Patriots project.
DAR is the primary financial sponsor of the DAR Pathway of the Patriots project, and will receive branding and signage promotion as a result of this highly commemorative opportunity. DAR states, chapters, clubs and individuals are welcome to adopt a tree in memory of a Patriot. The 250 trees and their respective Patriots will be available for reservation on a first-come, first-served basis.
In order to be eligible to purchase this pin, donors must complete Pathways of the Patriots Tree adoption paperwork prior to making their donations, and they must meet the $3,000 minimum donation for the tree, either as an individual or collectively with a group of individuals. Approval is required to purchase this pin.
If you are interested in purchasing a tree for the DAR Pathway of the Patriots, please contact the Development Office by phone at (800) 449-1776 or by email.
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 1/8" x 1" and is adorned with a synthetic emerald.
