Welcome to the Iowa Society
Daughters of the American Revolution Website.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., 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. Membership in the society is open to any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution.

DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities including supporting active duty military personnel and assisting veteran patients, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and supporting schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.

Iowa is home to 43 chapters and about 1,800 members. Membership in a chapter allows individuals to gather together with women in their area who share similar interests, who encourage and support them and who inspire them to participate in volunteer service.
