Moving Forward in Service to America!
“We want a society founded on service.”
Eugenia Washington, DAR Founder
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2015. Since our 1890 founding, DAR members have worked tirelessly to promote historic preservation, patriotism, and educational ideals through a comprehensive committee structure in communities across this nation and in Units Overseas.
While we are a lineal society, we are also a vital service organization. Under President General Ann Turner Dillon, we are "Moving Forward in Service to America" by:
honoring the founding of our nation, one Patriot at a time;
encouraging renewed appreciation for the institutions of American freedom and the protections afforded by the U.S. Constitution;
supporting our U.S. Armed Forces, their families and our nation’s veterans;
charting financial stability for our National Society; and
fostering vibrant, engaged chapters that accomplish meaningful service and welcome new members to our important work.
DAR members have logged more than 10 million hours of service work across the globe since 2013. We salute our chapter members for their efforts and invite you to join us.
