Founded on the principle that we should help each other in times of need, one important way we strengthen community is through service.

Our Home Office sponsors statewide initiatives while local lodges conduct service projects in their own communities. Our focused service cause is grief support.

Everyone can get involved!

We’re focused on grief support.

As a life insurance organization that cares about the financial protection of families when life is lost,
we also care about the deeper emotional strain and supporting individuals through grief.

Connect with hospice organizations and grief support groups in your hometown.

Grief Support Session at Camp
