MDSSAR Maryland 400 Honorary Regiment

Join the Regiment by Donating to the MD400 Patriots's Fund


MD400 Honorary Regiment Medal

The Maryland 400 Patriots' Fund was established by the Maryland Society Sons of the American Revolution to receive contributions honoring the Maryland 400, gifts, bequests, and other assets given to the Maryland Society. Donations to the Maryland 400 Patriots' Fund are tax deductible. The Fund is used to support major initiatives of the Society.  An example of a major initiative is the $20,000 provided to the Maryland State Archives to research the stories and biographies of those Marylanders who fought at the Battle of Brooklyn on August 27, 1776.

You can see the results of this research Patriots Biographies project on the Maryland Archives website; Finding the Maryland 400 . The Maryland Society Sons of the American Revolution will continue to promote Maryland's Revolutionary War history and the stories of the Maryland Patriots who fought for liberty.

Donate to the Maryland 400 Patriots's Fund and receive an honorary rank in the Maryland 400 Regiment.  Donations are cumulative so over time you can earn promotions.  You do not have to be a member of the Maryland Society Sons of the American Revolution to participate.   In fact, you can donate in the names of others and they will be added to the rolls of the Honorary Regiment.


Donations to the Maryland 400 Patriots' Fund may be made by check payable to MDSSAR and mailed to:

Treasurer Gary R. Neal
P. O. Box 1
Cockeysville, MD 21030-0001

The roster of honorary members will be posted on the Maryland Society website and will be presented each year during the George Washington luncheon in February.
