Who We Are
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 F.O.E. was founded in February, 1898 by six theater owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musicians strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things”. As numbers grew, members selected the Bald Eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles”.
F.O.E. membership exceeds 800,000, with more than 1,500 local Aeries in the U.S. and Canada. Women’s auxiliaries total more than 1,300. Members are recruited by other members and must be sponsored by two members before the membership process begins.
