We strive to live our lives by the beliefs of Charity, Truth and Loving Kindness along with certain core values.
We are the largest fraternal organization in the world to which both women and men can belong. With Chapters in almost all 50 states and in 27 countries around the world, members can go anywhere and know that they can find friends and a helpful hand when they’re in need.
We encourage our members not only to help one another, but also to reach out to their communities. Members are active in many community-based projects for those requiring assistance.
The members of our Order reflect the social, cultural, educational, ethnic, and religious diversity of the community around them. We value each other’s strengths and opinions.
Members are taught an allegiance to preserve the good of their country and be good citizens. Special programs like VA Hospital Visitations and fundraising for the Wounded Warrior Program are examples of patriotism that part of being a member.
As an organization, we raise funds for aid to our members in need, scholarships for students regardless of age or membership status, as well as other charities that improve not only our own well being but that of all human-kind. We also fund and operate a Nursing Home and Independent and Assisted Living facility in Oriskany, NY.
