I greet you with a friendly hello and welcome to the life and times of the Wisconsin Society Daughters of the American Revolution. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, 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.
Today, the WSDAR State Society is a vibrant organization with over 1500 members in thirty-four chapters. We embrace the mission of the society with open arms, focusing on historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Chapters and their members have worked on service projects in conservation, marking of historic sites and graves, and to engage teachers and students to enjoy the richness of American history. WSDAR committees promote Literacy Promotion, Junior American Citizens clubs, Good Citizen designations for high school seniors, scholarship opportunities, the celebration of Constitution Week and much, much more. Our members amass thousands of meaningful service hours each year which include community, veteran, and school activities.
WSDAR holds great promise as we continue to attract new members. The National Society’s committee on DAR Leadership Training provides wonderful opportunities for membership growth through the Members Course (what it means to be a Daughter), Committee Leaders Course (effective committee leadership, chapter to national chair), and the New Horizons Course (inspiring confidence and leadership skills to be a DAR leader). All of these training courses reinforce the integrity of the National Society and its promotion of professional development at any stage of membership. Our Wisconsin Daughters are rapidly working toward these designations to grasp future leadership opportunities in our state society.
DAR members are proud of their heritage and what it means to have such a deep connection to the founding of the United States of America. We hope you will take some time to review this website and see all that the society has to offer prospective and existing members of any age. Please take a look inside WSDAR!
