The Benefits of Membership!
If you want to make a difference in your life and the lives of those in your community,
start with an organization that lives and breathes service- The Fraternal Order
The F.O.E. was founded in 1898 on a premise of proud, caring, People Helping People
that understand the needs of the many will always outweigh the needs of the few.
Our members are truly a family of brothers and sisters who work hard to better our
communities and world. In times of joy and in times sorrow, your Eagle family is
always there. Whether our time is spent at a meeting, enjoying the social room or
washing dishes after a charity dinner, Eagle members carry a sense of pride knowing
their time is well spent.
Simply put, we change lives for the better. Over the years, proud Eagles have quietly
contributed millions of charity dollars to medical centers and causes ranging from
heart disease to cancer. We help troubled youth, support the elderly, and uplift
the less fortunate.
Today, we are more than 830,000 strong. Once you have joined, opportunities exist
within the organization for members of all ages and interests. Take a look!
Each month, the Fraternal Order of Eagles offers the Soar bulletin, full of great
news and information about the organization. Every issue is available online to
members free of charge with special full-color editions mailed to every Eagle household
each April and October. Click the link below to check out the October 2012 edition
The Memorial Foundation
Among the greatest benefits of membership with The Fraternal Order of Eagles is
the Memorial Foundation. Since World War II, the Eagles have offered protection
for the families of members through this one-of-a-kind safety net. If a member dies
while performing their job or serving their country, his/her children are eligible
to receive educational grants, medical benefits, dental benefits, optical care,
hospitalization and psychiatric care. To date, the Memorial Foundation has assisted
more than 3,000 kids with more than $2.5 million in benefits.

Eagle Village in Bradenton, Fla., is another valuable benefit of membership with
the Eagles. Located just minutes from the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico,
this 26-acre complex features 85 single-bedroom units, a library, recreation center,
pool, gym, shuffleboard, and a three-acre lake. Eagles with at least 10 years of
continuous membership have the unique opportunity to settle down in retirement alongside
other members at a peaceful living community. In the meantime, all members are eligible
to rent a unit for a vacation get-away, depending upon availability.

Joining the Fight Against Diabetes
We are proud to be developing The Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center
at the University of Iowa - A $25
million commitment to cure diabetes once and for
all. In 2008, the F.O.E. pledged to donate the money over five years to exclusively
fund research that will help bring us closer to a cure for diabetes. We believe
there is power in numbers and with the hard work and influence of our large membership
base, we know we can bring an end to this disease which affects 30 million American
and Canadian citizens on a daily basis. Join the Eagles today and be a part of the
