DAR members volunteer more than 60,000 hours annually to veteran patients, award over $150,000 in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and support schools for the underprivileged with annual donations exceeding one million dollars. Any woman 18 years or older-regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background - who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution - is eligible for membership.
