"a society founded on service"

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization founded in 1890 by a small group of patriotic women who desired to step out of their daily lives to serve the nation and its people.

Nationally, DAR members volunteer more than 200,000 hours annually to veterans in Veterans Administration (VA) medical centers and non-VA facilities, offer support to America's service personnel abroad through care packages, sponsor programs promoting the U.S. Constitution, and participate in naturalization ceremonies.
DAR members participate in various projects to help preserve the cultural heritage of the United States. Pennsylvania State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (PSSDAR) have supported the National Patriots Bell Tower in Montgomery County; the Fort Pitt Blockhouse in Allegheny County; the Madonna of the Trail in Washington County; and the Rocky Spring Church in Franklin County, to name a few.
DAR members are passionate about education through the promotion of the Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.), DAR Good Citizens, and Junior American Citizens; the provision of scholarships and awards to outstanding students; and the support of six schools through chapter and member donations.
