Our membership is growing substantially as more and more women are becoming interested in learning more about their American heritage, and want to become a part of our phenomenal organization.
In addition to its extensive genealogy resources, the DAR is also recognized as a service organization. Locally, we offer an annual essay and scholarship contest to local senior high school Good Citizens, sponsor student American History essay contests for students in 5th through 8th grade, work with women’s shelters, donate comfort items to the Kansas City Veteran Hospital, and support active military personnel. We honor veterans and sponsor special commemorative events in our history as well as participate in various projects at the local, state, and national level. We encourage community involvement and promote literacy, good citizenship, conservation, and recognition of outstanding individuals who are making a difference within our community.The women of today's DAR come from different backgrounds but share a common dedication to America.

Membership in our chapter is based upon eligibility requirements established by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, which was organized in 1890.
If you are interested in determining your DAR eligibility, just doing research, or verifying your grandmother's DAR membership, we invite you to visit the national DAR website to learn more about DAR, and utilize its extensive database.
