The Fraternal Order of Eagles are giving people by nature, and charitable giving is a grand part of their existence. For more than 100 years the Fraternal Order of Eagles have raised and disbursed countless millions of dollars to help those in need and to fund research to find cures for the diseases that trouble mankind. The members are the cornerstone of volunteerism and giving. They are to be commended for their relentless efforts and the resourceful methods used to raise money for charity.

 

The Charity Foundation consists of the Diabetes Research Center and special projects such as the Grand Worthy and Madam President's Charity, Grand Worthy President’s Project, Grand Madam President’s Project and the projects of individual State/Provincial Presidents.

 

Fundraisers are conducted for eight major national charities, including kidney, heart, diabetes, cancer and spinal cord injury funds, a children's fund, memorial foundation and the Golden Eagle Fund. For more detailed information about these national charities, please visit the Grand Aerie Charities Page.

 

There are additional charities dedicated by Iowa Eagles to raise funds for in addition to eight major national charities. Grant requests can be made for these charities.
