"a society founded on service"

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization founded in 1890 by a small group of patriotic women who desired to step out of their daily lives to serve the nation and its people.

Patriotism
Nationally, DAR members volunteer more than 200,000 hours annually to veterans in Veterans Administration (VA) medical centers and non-VA facilities, offer support to America's service personnel abroad through care packages, sponsor programs promoting the U.S. Constitution, and participate in naturalization ceremonies.
Preservation
DAR members participate in various projects to help preserve the cultural heritage of the United States. Pennsylvania State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (PSSDAR) have supported the National Patriots Bell Tower in Montgomery County; the Fort Pitt Blockhouse in Allegheny County; the Madonna of the Trail in Washington County; and the Rocky Spring Church in Franklin County, to name a few.
Education
DAR members are passionate about education through the promotion of the Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.), DAR Good Citizens, and Junior American Citizens; the provision of scholarships and awards to outstanding students; and the support of six schools through chapter and member donations.

Pennsylvania Daughters

The Pennsylvania State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (PSSDAR) is represented by women of all backgrounds.

Pennsylvania State Society 2022-2025 Administration Theme and Project

The theme of the Fritsch Administration is "Love of Service to God, Home, and Country!" The daisy is the flower of love and symbolizes new beginnings, hope, and motherhood. For PSSDAR, the daisy inspires the new and creative projects we will tackle, the hope we have for our country, and the maternal love we have for communities. The daisy embodies our love of service to God, Home, and Country!

Fritsch Administration Logo

The Fritsch Administration will focus on the historic preservation of the Old Swedes Cemetery located in Chester, Pennsylvania. The cemetery is the final resting place of John Morton, a Signer of the Declaration of Independence. This historic cemetery is in dire need of preservation and PSSDAR will preserve this American treasure. In addition to the preservation of the cemetery, PSSDAR will also support educational programs for local school children to learn about this historic site and their community.
