    What is the DAR?

    The DAR is a women’s volunteer service non-profit organization. Members trace their ancestry to a supporter of the American Revolutionary War. Any woman over 18 years of age who shares this revolutionary lineage is welcome to join.

    DAR Service Around the State

    Daughters around the State of New York are involved in their communities in a myriad of ways. From cleaning historic sites, raising funds for veteran honor flights, and running book drives for community centers. You will always find a daughter ready to support the DAR's mission areas of historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
