Welcome to the Georgia State Society, DAR!
WELCOME to our beautiful state where over 8,300 Georgia Daughters of the American Revolution are “Inspired” to promote Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) was founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children.
DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities including supporting active-duty military personnel and assisting veteran patients, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and supporting schools for under-served children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars. Any woman 18 years or older regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background who can prove lineal descent from a Patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership.
Georgia Daughters welcome you to JOIN-DAR! We are eager to help YOU find the Patriot in your family so you may be a part of this 131 year old service organization!
Inspired to serve DAR,
Betty Harrah, State Regent 2022-2024
