Fraternal gatherings return; fraternal programs still available

As of July 1, 2021, Modern Woodmen member chapters, Summit chapters and youth service clubs can again host face-to-face events. In addition to in-person activities, members may also be able to learn, socialize and make an impact through service-at-home, limited-contact and virtual activities. Contact your local chapter or youth service club leader to learn more about upcoming opportunities in your area.

In 2020, Modern Woodmen's COVID-19 Relief Program helped chapters and youth service clubs contribute nearly $1.1 million in direct monetary donations to local nonprofit organizations addressing local issues caused or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Modern Woodmen continues to offer many fraternal programs that can help members impacted by COVID-19, including:

  • Fraternal Aid Fund: Members experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-related medical expenses could qualify to have their life insurance premiums paid by Modern Woodmen for a limited time.
  • PerkSpot: Members can receive discounts on thousands of products and services, from groceries to entertainment.
  • Final Wishes: Members can complete important planning steps while at home with this interactive online program.
  • Do-Good Grant®: Eligible members can receive $100 (and other resources) to plan a volunteer project in their community. The program allows members to help a local cause through in-person events or online methods. Modern Woodmen will give away up to 500 grants per year on a first-come, first-served basis.

Access these programs and more on the member website.
