Welcome to DAR!
The New York State Organization (NYSO), National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), was established in 1896. It is one of the oldest woman’s volunteer service organizations.
What is the DAR?
The DAR is a nonprofit, nonpolitical woman’s volunteer service 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.
Historic preservation has always been a core mission of the DAR organization.
