To be eligible to purchase the Friends of American Spirit pin, a donor must first make a new $100 contribution to the DAR Magazine Endowment Fund through the Friends of American Spirit Fund using the Donations and Contributions for Special Committees and Funds form.
At the same time, the donor must purchase five new one-year gift subscriptions using the MAG-2000 form, accompanied by a check made payable to the Treasurer General, NSDAR, in the amount of $120 (i.e., five one-year subscriptions at $24 each). Both forms and a separate check for each form must be submitted through the Development Office in order to qualify to purchase the Friends of American Spirit 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 3/4".
