         Welcome to Corpus Christi Chapter NSDAR
 

About Us
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.

Consider membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), a volunteer women's service organization that honors and preserves the legacy of our Patriot ancestors. More than 200 years ago, American Patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.  As a member of DAR, you can continue this legacy by actively promoting patriotism, preserving American history and securing America's future through better education for children. 

       Corpus Christi Chapter enthusiastically promotes the DAR mission. The chapter was officially organized May 27, 1927, and named in honor of our historic city.  We meet on the third Friday of the month, September through May, unless otherwise determined.  Contact us about attending a meeting.

 

Our Mission

Corpus Christi Chapter, NSDAR, promotes the National Society's mission of historic preservation, patriotism, and education through a variety of programs and activities. No matter where your interest lies, there are opportunities to participate.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, is threefold-

Patriotic, Historic, Educational

    Most of DAR's volunteer work is accomplished under a committee system. Members find many possibilities to serve within this system.  To learn more about how Corpus Christi Chapter members carry out the Society's mission, see the links below.

Historic

Since the DAR was founded, members have been involved in their communities with a wide variety of historic preservation projects. The   members of Corpus Christi Chapter believe in protecting our heritage for   future generations. 

Patriotic

Promoting the ideals of patriotism and love of country is as relevant    today as it was in the year 1776. Our members believe in trying to make America a better place in which to live. Click on the link above to see some of the ways we support the ideals of freedom.
 


Education


DAR members have always considered education an important aspect of the Society’s mission. Chapter members work with our local youth through various educational programs.   In the Corpus Christi Chapter we support area schools through our NJROTC Awards, History and Christopher Columbus Essay Contests,   and DAR Good Citizen Contests.
