The Daughters of the Cincinnati have contributed to the scholarship fund for over a century. The fund has seen recessions and depressions, great and small, but the Daughters have continued to support the scholarships generously, as have family foundations, Daughters’ employers, as well as scholarship graduates and their parents. However, the fund cannot keep up with rising tuition costs without donations.
In March 2013, the Daughters of the Cincinnati launched the successful Military Stars Campaign to raise funds for the continuation of its mission and to better meet the financial needs of its scholarship applicants.
The Daughters of the Cincinnati is a 501(c)(3) charity. Individuals and foundations may contribute any amount as well as appreciated stock to the Scholarship Fund.
