On behalf of the more than 11,000 members of the Florida State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (FSSDAR), I welcome you to our State Society website. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization that was founded in 1890. Eligibility for joining is proof of direct, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided the Americans during the Revolutionary War. These patriots may have fought, rendered aid, or provided supplies for the cause.
The DAR boasts more than 190,000 members worldwide. These Daughters work to promote three objectives of NSDAR: historic preservation, education, and patriotism. DAR members volunteer more than four million hours annually. Volunteer areas are as varied as our membership with assistance to veterans, schools, literacy, scholarships, preservation, libraries, conservation, American history, and many other avenues of service. Our members are diverse in age, race, and ethnicity. Yet, our commitment to service and our country is a common denominator.
With 110 chapters in Florida, from the Panhandle to the Keys, I invite you to inquire about DAR membership. Please contact a chapter in your area for more information.
