Welcome to the San Fernando Valley Chapter DAR
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer service organization made up of over 175,000 members worldwide with 3,000 chapters. These chapters are located in all 50 states and in many countries around the world. On October 11, 1890, 18 women met to officially organize the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over 800,000 members have been admitted into membership.
The San Fernando Valley Chapter, NSDAR, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on April 19, 1917, and became the forty-third chapter in California on October 25, 1918.
Our chapter supports our veterans through a variety of activities. We support our veterans at the Sepulveda VA Hospital in North Hills, California (CA) through several activities and donations. The chapter also participates in the Adopt A Soldier program with deployed soldiers.
Donations are made monthly to the DAR schools and Ronald McDonald House. Each year the chapter awards the Catherine Hubbard Dace American History Memorial Award to an outstanding female student.
In addition to monthly meetings (Sept.- June), our members and prospectives meet for periodic day trips and dinners. Please click here to visit our calendar for further information. On the 3rd Tuesday of every month a DAR volunteer genealogist provides research and application assistance for a DAR application at the Southern CA Genealogical Society library.
