As a Modern Woodmen member, Kimberly Case applied for and received Modern Woodmen of America’s Do-Good Grant, a new fraternal member benefit that provides $100 and planning resources for members to hold a volunteer event with friends and community members in their hometowns. The benefit is one of many ways Modern Woodmen, a fraternal financial services organization, enriches member communities.
Together with Austin High School Students Hannah Case, Logan Farnsworth and Megan Schultz, and their parents Julie Farnsworth and Shelly Schultz, they were able to make 102 fleece hats for the Austin elementary schools to be used this winter. Doing a little good in our community.
Founded in 1883, Modern Woodmen supports members, families and communities throughout the United States. As a fraternal benefit society, the organization is defined by its unique blend of financial services, member benefits and community impact opportunities. In 2017, Modern Woodmen and its members provided $20.6 million and 534,000 volunteer hours to support fraternal activities and programs.
