On behalf of the more than 11,000 members of the Florida State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), I welcome you to our State Society website.  The DAR is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer woman’s service organization that was founded in 1890. The eligibility for joining is proof of direct lineage to a man or woman who served in the American War for independence – The Revolutionary War. These patriots may have fought or rendered aid or supplies for the cause.

The DAR boasts more than 185,000 members nationwide. 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, religion and ethnicity; but, our commitment to service and our country is a common denominator.

With 108 chapters in Florida, from the Panhandle to the Keys, we invite you to inquire about DAR membership. Please contact a chapter in your area for more information.

About DAR

The DAR, 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.



As one of the three objectives of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), education is an important component of the DAR mission.
