Welcome to the official website for the California State Society Daughters of the American Revolution founded in 1891.
California Daughters invite you to discover how you can join Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Any woman eighteen years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background who can prove lineal descent from a patriot ancestor who provided aid to the American Revolution, is eligible for membership.
As a member of our non-profit, non-political women's service organization, you enter a network of over 175,000 women around the world who form lifelong bonds; honor their revolutionary ancestors; and promote historic preservation, education and patriotism in their communities. DAR members nationwide volunteer more than 250,000 hours annually in veterans programs, award thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid to students, and support schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.
As you explore this website, check out our list of 114 DAR chapters located throughout California. The list is organized by geographic location to help you find a chapter in your area. We look forward to meeting you!
