Our Mission Statement
The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization uniting fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills and promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope.
The Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E.) was established in February 1898 when six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician’s strike. Once they resolved the issue, they decided to reconcile their differences and create “The Order of Good Things.” Over time, as membership increased, they adopted the Bald Eagle as their official emblem and changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles.” The women’s auxiliary has its origins in 1927. Presently, the Fraternal Order of Eagles boasts nearly 800,000 members and operates more than 1,500 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Feel free to visit one of our locations and experience firsthand why we are renowned as “People Helping People.”
