Membership in DAR


Membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor. Over two hundred years ago, American patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. As a member of DAR, through participation in the Society’s various programs and activities, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavor.

DAR members are educators, students, professionals, mothers, historians, genealogists, and homemakers, who continue this legacy. They play an active role in their communities promoting our objectives of patriotism, education, and historic preservation. With about 3,000 chapters throughout the world, and with over 180,000 members, we are one of the largest women's service organizations in the world.

Membership in DAR offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Promoting American history throughout the year by honoring historically significant people, places, dates, and events
  • Participating in commemorative events such as Flag Day, Veterans Day, and the 4th of July
  • Participation in meaningful service projects throughout the community
  • Recognizing students with awards and scholarships; involving all family members in promoting service efforts
  • Supporting the Constitution of the United States of America, the patriotic values of our country, and the military men and women who serve the nation
  • Enjoying camaraderie with other DAR members during projects, events, and social events
  • Embracing opportunities to improve leadership abilities by taking on responsibilities at chapter, state, and national levels
