Welcome to the website of the New Jersey State Society of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution!

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was founded in 1890, and is headquartered in Washington, DC. DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and to securing America's future through better education for children. DAR members volunteer more than 250,000 hours annually to military veteran patients, award many thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and support schools for the underprivileged with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.

The New Jersey State Society (NJDAR) was organized on April 29, 1891. Today, there are forty-seven chapters located throughout the state. If you can trace your lineage to a patriot of the American Revolution, we would be honored to have you become a member of the New Jersey State Society, Daughters of the American Revolution.

YouTube YouTube We invite you to learn more about the DAR by visiting a chapter in your area, and by viewing a series of videos on YouTube, celebrating our organization's historic preservation, educational, and patriotic work. These videos provide a brief introduction to the work of Today's DAR, and will introduce you to some of the dynamic women who are part of our extraordinary service organization. More than fifteen videos on the DAR are featured on YouTube, with plans to add more as they become available.

facebook logo Information on Today's DAR is available on Facebook, as well. In addition to information about the society, you will find photos of DAR Memorial Continental Hall and our museum, including period museum rooms and current exhibits. Photographs of recent events are included, as well as speakers for the most recent annual Continental Congress.
