National Society Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society 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 for children. Nationally, DAR members volunteer more than 250,000 hours annually to veteran patients, award thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and support schools for the underprivileged with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.

We invite you to learn more about the DAR by visiting a chapter in your area, and by viewing a series of videos on YouTube, celebrating our organization's historic preservation, educational, and patriotic work. These videos provide a brief introduction to the work of Today's DAR, and will introduce you to some of the dynamic women who are part of our extraordinary service organization. More than fifteen videos on the DAR are featured on YouTube with plans to add more as they become available.

Information on Today's DAR is available on Facebook as well. In addition to information about the National Society, you will find photos of DAR Memorial Continental Hall and our museum, including period museum rooms and current exhibits. Photographs of recent events are included as well as speakers for the most recent annual Continental Congress.
