The DAR, founded in 1890, and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts more than 170,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally. 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.
DAR members volunteer more than 55,000 hours annually to veteran patients, award over $150,000 in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and support schools for the underprivileged with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.
The Jane Randolph Jefferson Chapter usually meets on the first Saturday of each month (September to May) in Jefferson City, Missouri. If you are interested in joining us please contact the chapter.
