2012 Congress Matching Gift Challenge

During the 122nd Congress held in Phoenix, Arizona  Dr. Sam Powell, President of The SAR Foundation, announced that he and his wife Karen will make a $1.5 million gift to the Center for Advancing America's Heritage, payable in 2012.

Dr. Powell also announced that Societies will be given double credit for all future payments to the CAAH up to $1.5 million towards the State Challenge Campaign. This campaign seeks to have all Societies reach a combined goal of an average of $250 given to the CAAH, per member, and more than 20% of the members donating.  A new target is established to have half - 50% - of the Compatriot membership contribute - in any amount - to the completion of the construction project now in sight, with full pride in what has been accomplised by so many efforts.

Please make checks payable to: The SAR Foundation with CAAH written on the "Note" or "For" line on the bottom left side of the check.
