Vision, Mission and Creed

Modern Woodmen founder Joseph Cullen Root envisioned a fraternal benefit society that would improve lives and clear away financial burdens for families. His vision of who we could be is who we still are today.

The bonds we share
Throughout our history, Modern Woodmen members have touched lives and secured futures nationwide. Today members remain connected by common bonds, including:
  • Financial security for families, through life insurance, annuity, investment* and banking products.
  • Quality family life, through member benefits and local fraternal activities.
  • Community impact, through local volunteer projects.
