WHAT IS THE HELEN POUCH MEMORIAL FUND?



About Our Kangaroo

All funds raised through the Junior Membership Committee are designated for the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund. Through the years, this fund has provided more than $2 million dollars in financial assistance for our schools.

In honor of Mrs. William Pouch, or "Aunt Helen," as she was fondly called by the Juniors, we use the kangaroo to represent the Helen Pouch Memorial Fund. This symbol was first used during the administration of Mrs. Raymond Franklin Fleck, President General 1986-1989.

The Helen Pouch Memorial Fund was established in April 1938 and named in memory of Helen Pouch, 1901-1919. Helen was the daughter of Mrs. William H. Pouch, the first national chairman of the Junior Membership Committee, 1937, and President General, NSDAR, 1941-1944. This fund provides medical aid, general financial assistance, and scholarships at our schools.

The annual Junior commitment to the DAR Schools totals $43,000. This is achieved through the sales of nationally approved Junior products at the state and national levels as well as the contributions of chapters for Chapter Achievement Award credit.
