The Daughters of the American Revolution 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.
The Gold Trail chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized in 1977, and it plays an important role in its community.
DAR members include professional women, homemakers, and retirees from many walks of life who work in a variety of different ways to advance the mission of the National Society, which is to promote education, historic preservation, and patriotism.
In just part of its many programs and projects, DAR members volunteer more than 250,000 hours annually to veteran patients; award over $150,000 each year in scholarships and financial aid to students; support schools for the underprivileged with annual donations exceeding one million dollars; conserve over 30,000 pre-industrial era American objects in the DAR museum; and participate in naturalization ceremonies for new citizens.
