We are dedicated to furthering patriotic endeavors, creating programs for educators and students, and promoting American history. We have fifty US societies, multiple international societies, and more than five hundred local chapters. American patriotism and history are promoted by the SAR through a variety of youth-oriented scholarship and awards programs. The SAR is also actively involved in a variety of important community service programs including recognizing and supporting veterans and the efforts of public safety officials.
