The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) was founded in 1876 in San Francisco by descendants of Sam Adams, and other heroes of the 1776-1787 American War for Independence;  it is a nonprofit educational organization.  Donations are tax-deductible pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Chapters have been formed in every state and many countries. The By-Laws of the National Society of Sons of the American Revolution provide that SAR  is a "non-political" organization. Publications and venues of SAR are not used to advocate for any political party or faction,  but rather to promote citizen awareness of our Revolutionary history and founding principles that unite all Americans. The SAR endorses no political candidates.

The SAR began with the organization of the Society of the Sons of Revolutionary Sires on October 22, 1875, in San Francisco, where the SRS was fully instituted on July 4, 1876. The SAS, together with a number of similar societies from 12 other states, formed the NSSAR on April 30, 1889, and the SRS changed its name to the CASSAR.
