The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was founded in 1890. DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to historical preservation, promoting education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavor. As the most inclusive lineal society in the country, DAR boasts 175,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally.

Most of DAR's volunteer work is accomplished under a committee system comprised of a national chairman appointed by the President General and locally appointed state and chapter chairmen. The national chairmen direct and supervise the activities of their committees with the assistance of the national vice chairmen. The committees are grouped based on the above-mentioned goals and objectives.

Membership is open to 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.
