Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer organization dedicated to American history, patriotism, and education. 

Founded in 1890, the DAR is one of the largest women’s lineage-based, patriotic, nonprofit organizations in the world. Over 1,000,000 members have carried out the mission to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. The women who are members of the DAR come from all walks of life but share the common bond of descending from an ancestor who contributed to the fight for our nation’s independence. The NSDAR is committed to honoring our nation’s past by serving our communities today.
