Membership

Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution is open to any woman who canprove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who served the cause of American independence between 1775 and 1783. It opens the doors of opportunity to join more than 190,000 active women in 3,000 chapters world-wide, who share a common bond in the ancestral history of the founding of the United States of America. Nowhere else can one find such a distinguished group of women with such a rich heritage and spirit.

This organization is a non-political, service organization which qualifies as a non-profit under the U.S. law for charitable organizations. Over 50 committees are actively engaged in projects related to American Heritage, American History, Americanism, American Indians, Conservation, Commemorative Events, DAR schools, Service for Veterans, DAR Project Patriot, National Defense, and many more. Members, or Daughters as we call them, are actively engaged in their communities performing a wide variety of services. No matter where your talents, strengths, and interests lie, there is a DAR committee tailored for you. What a wonderful way to leave your mark in history!
