The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-political, non-profit, volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to preserving American history, promoting patriotism, and securing America’s future through better education for children.
The DAR was founded in 1890, and its main headquarters are located in Washington, DC. DAR members volunteer annually to support veterans; they also award scholarships and financial aid each year to students and support schools for the underprivileged with annual donations.
DAR is also one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country. There are over 195,000 members in the 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally. Any woman 18 years or older – regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background – who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolutionary War is eligible for membership.
