Membership in DAR

Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor. Over two hundred years ago, American patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. As a member of DAR, through participation in the Society's various programs and activities, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavor.

DAR members are educators, students, professionals, mothers, historians, genealogists, and homemakers who take an active role in their communities promoting our objectives of patriotism, education, and historic preservation. With almost 3,000 chapters throughout the world, and nearly 180,000 members, we are one of the largest women's organizations in the world.

Membership in DAR offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Promoting American history throughout the year by honoring historically significant people, places, dates, and events.

  • Participating in commemorative events such as Flag Day, Veterans Day, and the 4th of July.

  • Engaging in meaningful service projects in the community.

  • Supporting the Constitution of the United States of America, patriotism, and the military men and women who serve the nation.

  • Building your network, developing friendships, and maybe finding "cousins" among our members.

  • Challenging yourself to build leadership skills by taking on responsibilities at chapter, state, and national levels.

Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death.
