the Sons of the American Revolution


If you are the son, grandson, brother, nephew or grand-nephew of someone who is or was a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, Daughters of the American Revolution or Children of the American Revolution, then there is a discount offered on the application fee.  As long as you are using the same lineage for your membership and reference the application of the member or former member.  The other requirement is that you be over eighteen years of age and under twenty-five years of age.   The National application fee for this age group is $30.

The annual dues are not effected by this discount and are still required for the calendar year in which their applications are approved by the National Society and is included in the application fee.

Checks should be for your application fees and dues.  There is usually one check to the Chapter, one to the State Society, and one to the National Society.   Each branch of the organization may have an application fee component and an annual dues component that will be different than what is shown.

The following is a breakdown of the typical fees involved.  The actual State and Chapter Level fees and dues may vary.

Family Discount shown here:

  • National Level: $30 (application fee) + $35 (dues) = $65
  • Typical State Level: $5 (application fee) + $15 (dues) = $20
  • Typical Chapter Level: $0 (application fee) + $8 (dues) = $8

Submit the completed application form to your sponsoring Chapter for approval (your helper will likely do this) and it will be forwarded to the State Society and then to NSSAR Headquarters in Louisville for final approval.  Do Not send the application and fees to the National organization direct.  It must come to the National organization from a State Society.
