The Daughters of the American Revolution is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history and securing America's future through better education.
DAR has over 185,000 members in over 3,000 chapters in the United States and abroad. Any woman who descends from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.
The purpose of DAR is to perpetuate the memory and the spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence, to promote the development of an enlightened public opinion, and to foster patriotic citizenship - these are the objectives of our society, Daughters of the American Revolution.
"Any woman is eligible for membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution who is not less than eighteen years of age, and who is lineally descended from a man or woman who, with unfailing loyalty to the cause of American independence, served as a sailor, or a soldier or civil officer in one of the several Colonies or States, or in the United Colonies or States or as a recognized patriot, or rendered material aid thereto, provided an applicant for chapter membership is personally acceptable to the chapter."
