The Fraternal Order of Eagles passionately upholds the principle that every single penny donated should directly and profoundly benefit those individuals who are most in need. We firmly believe in the power of compassion and generosity to transform lives, and that is precisely why we go the extra mile to ensure that 100% of all funds raised are channeled back to those who require assistance, in the form of impactful grants.
In an era where numerous charitable organizations allocate a portion of donations to cover administrative costs, we take a different path — one driven by our unwavering commitment to our donors and the people we serve. Instead of diverting your contributions towards overhead expenses, we rely on our membership dues to shoulder those financial obligations. By doing so, we guarantee that every dollar of your generous donation is dedicated solely to making a tangible difference in the lives of the men, women, and children in our communities who are in need of support.
This approach not only demonstrates our dedication to transparency and accountability but also highlights our profound respect for your decision to entrust us with your support. We understand that your philanthropic intentions arise from a deep-rooted desire to positively impact society, and we take that responsibility to heart.
Join us in our mission to uplift and empower the most vulnerable members of our society. Together, we can make a genuine and lasting difference, ensuring that hope and opportunity reach those who need it the most.

The F.O.E. Charity Foundation hosts a variety of funds - each dedicated to a specific cause - which collect donations from our nearly 3,000 Aeries and Auxiliaries for the purposes of awarding grants to local and/or international organizations dedicated to research and patient care.
Each year our members help give nearly $10 million to community and nationwide organizations helping better lives and donate countless hours of their time to a wide array of fundraisers.
Since 1898, the F.O.E. has worked to establish a philanthropic legacy, becoming the first organization to donate $1 million to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, donating several hundred thousand in aid to help solidify the Truman CardiovascularLab and Heart Fund Research Lab at Sutton Medical Research Foundation, and our crown jewel - the $25 million Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center at the University of Iowa.
Eagles are giving people and our Charity Foundation is a perfect representation of why we're known throughout the world as "People Helping People."
