Mission The Oklahoma Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s volunteer service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education and patriotism. We have forty-three chapters throughout the state of Oklahoma, with the majority of our membership concentrated in metropolitan areas enabling us to support a variety of projects.

The Oklahoma Society, NSDAR began in 1894 in Indian Territory, Oklahoma, and continues strong today with 44 active DAR chapters and over 3,000 members across the great state of Oklahoma.   The goals of both the national organization and our state organization remain little changed over the years – preserving history through various projects recommended by our members, supporting education, American history and good citizenship in our state schools, supporting our nation’s troops in a variety of ways, and fostering a sense of civic and patriotic duty in all with whom we come in contact.

In support of our goals we have four endowments:

Oklahoma Society, NSDAR – This endowment provides support for civic, historic and educational projects within our communities. This fund enables us to further support our DAR Good Citizens Program which recognizes outstanding high school seniors and rewards the qualities of good citizenship; The American History Teacher award which recognizes an outstanding American History teacher each year; Colonial Days at the Capitol which brings 5th grade school children to the state capitol to experience colonial and learn about history through games, speakers and activities. These are just a few examples of projects that fall under this endowment.

Diane Hamill Oklahoma Hearts and Hands Healthcare Scholarship Endowment Fund – this fund provides scholarship opportunities to college students pursuing a career in a health related field and enrolled in an Oklahoma college or university.

McAdoo-Hill Oklahoma Scholarship Endowment Fund – this fund annually awards scholarships to deserving Oklahoma college students enrolled in an Oklahoma college or university.

McFall-Denslow Veterans First Fund – this endowment fund works through the Veterans Administration Voluntary Services group in the Oklahoma City and Muskogee VA Hospitals to identify nonmedical needs of veterans that must be met for their continued well being. End user service providers are paid through earnings of this fund after approval by an independent DAR board. Examples of services are daycare for a woman veteran desiring to increase her earnings capability by returning to school, clothing needs for veteran stand downs, meal vouchers for families accompanying veterans while they are in hospital care, short term housing while a veteran is remanded into long term living facilities, patient outings for those veterans trying to integrate back into the community at large.

Impact Last year Oklahoma Society, Daughters of the American Revolution used earnings from our endowments with the Oklahoma City Community Foundation to fund veterans needs through the Voluntary Services of the two state VA hospitals.  We provided six $2,000 scholarships to students living and attending college in Oklahoma.  We held citizenship and essay contests in schools throughout Oklahoma, with cash prizes for the top three winners in each category.  We awarded a cash prize to an outstanding Oklahoma history teacher.  Our current project, The Oklahoma Enrichment Center, is hoping two raise $85,000 over two years.  This funds from this project will be used to construct a permanent learning classroom in Washington, D.C.  Our chapters continued work with literacy, Colonial Days at the Capitol, and assisting with history teaching events. 
Needs Donations are being taken for The Oklahoma Enrichment Center.  We are also accepting funds in our Veterans First Fund, that is used to help with nonmedical needs for veterans.  All services provided are vetted through the Voluntary Services Organization at the two VA Medical Centers in Oklahoma.
CEO/Executive Director Statement We have no paid employees and therefore have no CEO/Executive Director.
Board Chair Statement

The passion of the Oklahoma Society, Daughters of the American Revolution to teach, inform and model community service and patriotism is legendary.   We are thrilled to take these ideals, combined with American history teaching efforts, into the schools for all age students. The outgrowth of these services are better informed citizens, now and in perpetuity. I know our efforts help instill a deeper sense of patriotism and love of country in all that we touch with our services, and that is truly exciting!

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments In 2013 Oklahoma Society Daughters of the American Revolution had a great opportunity to team up with the Warriors For Freedom Foundation to present a golf tournament to benefit our Veterans First Endowment.  The Red, White, and Blue Classic was such an overwhelming success it is going to become an annual event.  As part of our community outreach, and in an effort to make our patriotic voice heard everywhere, we will be participating in several Veteran's Day events as well as other commemorative events throughout the year.
