The Fraternal Order of Eagles
An international non-profit organization uniting fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills and promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope.
Founded in February, 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician's strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to "bury the hatchet" and form "The Order of Good Things." As numbers grew, members selected the Bald Eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to "The Fraternal Order of Eagles."
The F.O.E has had many accomplishments over the last 120 years, most notably founding Mother's Day . Since the time of the New Deal the FOE has promoted social legislation, particularly old age and mothers pensions, Social Security and workmens compensation. By 1980 it was advocating for seniors to work after age 65 and to return the Social Security system back to its original purpose.

Eagles give 100%
The Fraternal Order of Eagles believes every penny donated to our Charity Foundation should benefit the individuals who need it most - that's why we return 100% of all funds raised in the form of grants.
While many charities are using your donations to help offset a variety of administrative costs, we use membership dues to cover those costs to ensure your full donation is being used to make a difference in the lives of the men, women and children in need.
