Fraternal benefit societies offer members a unique chance to unite with others who want to get involved and impact their communities. At the same time fraternals offer members affordable insurance and support and savings through member benefit programs.
Operating through local networks, referred to as chapters, lodges or councils, fraternals enable their members to carry out charitable, educational, social and other volunteer community initiatives.
Each year through this unique structure, members of fraternal benefit societies invest more than 80 million hours in community works and contribute more than $533 million to charitable programs supporting community service projects making it one of the largest volunteer networks of community and social service providers in existence. Fraternals exist for the good of local communities and the benefit of members.
