DAR and National Activities
The National Society supports two DAR schools in the Appalachian region: Tamassee DAR School, Inc. in South Carolina and Kate Duncan Smith (KDS) DAR School in Alabama. Last year, DAR chapters raised nearly one million dollars to support these and other accredited schools, including:
- Crossnore School in North Carolina offers a stable, healing environment in a residential group setting for children from families in crisis.
- Hillside School in Massachusetts is an independent boarding and day school for eighty boys from varied backgrounds who are underachievers or who have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder.
- Hindman Settlement School, located in Kentucky, specializes in educating students with dyslexic characteristics.
- Berry College in Georgia is one of the outstanding comprehensive colleges in the South. The college offers fully accredited art, science, and professional programs, as well as specialized graduate programs in education and business administration.
Additionally, the National Society assists in the education of Indian youth through scholarships and support of Bacone College in Oklahoma and Chemawa Indian School in Oregon.

The Mount Diablo Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, is proud to announce its participation in the California State Society State Regent's Genealogical Bible Records Project.
Our state has been hard hit by fires and floods over the past few years; many residents have lost their most valued personal records.
This project will give those who have pre-World War II Bibles that contain family records an opportunity to have those records photocopied, indexed, and submitted to the National Society's genealogy library in Washington, D.C.
If you are interested in having your Bible records preserved as part of this project, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
