"A burden heavy to one is borne lightly by many." That is the Moose way.  As members of the International Moose Fraternity, we all have our unique stories of how we became members. We come from all walks of life and all ages. Our ranks include retired workers, college students, business owners, Veterans, active military members, politicians, homemakers, Hollywood movie stars, NASCAR drivers, and many others. We all joined for different reasons. Nevertheless, for whatever the A Ballistic Vest Donationreason, when we joined we all took an oath to uphold the traditions and ideals that were set in motion in 1888 when Moose International was created.

Our Moose Fraternity supports many different deserving charitable organizations and individuals through our philanthropic volunteering and donations, but our most important charities are Mooseheart and Moosehaven.

A Tommy Moose DonationMooseheart is a "child city" which was founded in 1913 as a place dedicated to providing a home for children in need. It is located 40 miles west of Chicago on a 1000-acre campus. It provides a place where kids can go and stay in a safe, secure, and nurturing environment while receiving a top-notch education. The school is home to kids of all ages from infancy to high school. Mooseheart takes in kids that have lost parents and others in just unhealthy environments.

A donation to support traumatic brain injury survivorsWe also support Moosehaven the "City of Contentment," on the shore of the broad St. Johns River in Orange Park, FL, 15 miles south of metropolitan Jacksonville. It has provided thousands of Moose members and their spouses with a secure, relaxed, and enjoyable retirement experience.

With all we do for others, we work just as hard to make our members happy too! We regularly hold dinners, seafood feasts, chili cook-offs, Texas Hold’em poker games, shuffle-board competitions, karaoke nights, kid’s parties, holiday parties, and the occasional Moose Idol competition. We are always looking for ways to keep our membership entertained.

So, who are we? We are Moose members (more than 1 million members strong) who believe in our fraternity, in its usefulness, in its influences and its accomplishments, to help our cherished youth and honored seniors and the communities in which we live.
