Welcome to the Utah State Society Daughters of the American Revolution website. The Utah Daughters invite you to discover how you can join our fabulous organization.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (dar.org) was founded on October 11, 1890 during a time that was marked by a revival in patriotism and intense interest in the beginnings of the United States of America. The Utah State Society was organized in 1896 with the formation of the Spirit of Liberty Chapter located in the Salt Lake City area. The DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, education and historic preservation. Our Daughters volunteer over 4 million service hours annually participating in community schools, hospitals, veterans’ homes, churches, etc. We are extraordinarily diverse represented by every race, religion and ethnicity and range in age from 18 to 100+ years. Today, our National membership boasts more than 186,000 members nationwide and internationally. Currently, the Utah State Society consists of 10 chapters statewide with a membership of 500+.

On this website, you will find information about membership, where our chapters are located, our Juniors (young women ages 18 to 35) and the State Regent’s blog. We invite you to inquire about becoming a member in DAR and the Utah State Society by visiting our contact page.

Rise and Shine for America,
