Founded in 1895, the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution, is the oldest patriotic organization for youth in our country. Membership is open to descendants of patriots of the American Revolution.
Any boy or girl under the age of twenty-one is eligible for membership in the National Society of the Children of the American Revolution who is lineally descended from a man or woman who, with unfailing loyalty, rendered material aid to the cause of American Independence as a soldier, sailor, civil officer, or recognized patriot in one of the several Colonies or States, or of the United States, provided that the applicant is personally acceptable to the Society.
Meetings and activities are planned for all ages with special consideration given to younger members.
Members gain invaluable leadership experience in conducting meetings, following parliamentary procedures and standard protocol, serving as delegates and speaking before groups at local, state and national conferences. The responsibility and privilege of selecting officers helps members gain an understanding of the democratic process.

Nevada State Project 2020-2021
Courting Nevada History
Through the sale of C.A.R. pins, funds will be raised for the restoration of the Belmont Courthouse in Belmont, Nevada. This building served as the Nye County courthouse for 29 years, starting in 1876. In 1905, the county seat moved to Tonopah, Nevada. The courthouse is part of the historic district of the town of Belmont, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The funds raised by Nevada C.A.R. will be used to preserve, restore, and protect the courthouse through the charitable organization The Friends of the Belmont Courthouse, which is under the cooperation and guidance of Nye County. For more information visit: http://belmontcourthouse.net/
The project will also promote Nevada history through the visitation of historic Nevada locations. There will be a contest to see which society and which individual can visit the most Nevada historic places.
We will also have a membership contest between our two local societies to see which obtains the most new members by application over the year.
National Project 2020-2021
“Support Our Brave and Noble Patriots” is inspired by a line in our C.A.R. Song, which was written in 1928 and continues to represent C.A.R.’s ideals of patriotism and support for our veterans.
The National Society will be partnering with Pets for Vets, a 501(c)(3) organization, to raise funds to place companion animals with veterans, many of which are experiencing PTSD. The animals are adopted and trained through donations, and each companion animal is highly trained to best meet the veteran’s needs.
Pets for Vets assists in the veterans fight against PTSD through building a safety net with the animal, creating connections, and overcoming trauma. Veterans apply for an animal through Pets for Vets and go through an interview process to match the veterans with an animal. Animals are then selected from the shelter specifically for each individual veteran and are trained before being placed with the veteran. Through this process, Pets for Vets helps to save pets from shelters, as well as provides veterans with the companions and support they need.
Through this year’s National Theme and Project, C.A.R. members are encouraged to give back to those who have served our nation and Support Our Brave and Noble Patriots.
