Work of the Society

California DAR Volunteering

For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historical preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavor. These goals are as relevant in today's society as they were when the organization was founded in 1890.

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.

As a State Regent takes office, she leads the Daughters in her state to achieve significant goals through the establishment of State Regent's Projects. In California, for the 2016-2018 term, the State Regent’s Projects will promote butterfly habitat restoration and education and will enhance the west side of the state headquarters property, thereby promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
