What is a Chapter?
Our WoodmenLife chapter is one of nearly 1,300 locally chartered units nationwide. Members belong to a chapter in the area in which they live and each chapter elects its own officers.
Through our community-focused, family-oriented chapter, members aspire to achieve fraternal ideals through our social, civic, charitable, educational, patriotic, and voluntary service activities. We partner with local schools, fire departments, and other charitable organizations to help make our community better for everyone.
Chapters across the country plan a diverse range of activities. A local chapter might host a family fish fry and game night, help build a local Habitat for Humanity home, or hold a bake sale to benefit its volunteer fire department. Our chapter activities create family time and are about having fun, making new friends, and helping others.
The idea of fraternalism has been around for thousands of years. It began with individuals who shared a commitment of caring for each other, helping those in times of need, and making their community a better place to live.
Those same beliefs hold true today at WoodmenLife. Fraternalism is at the very heart of our local chapter.

Giving Back at Home
WoodmenLife has been a staple of downtown Omaha since our founding in 1890. Making a difference in the communities where our members live and work is at our core, but we also recognize the value of being a good corporate citizen in our hometown. We do that by donating time and money to organizations that make a positive difference in Omaha, Council Bluffs and surrounding areas.
Each year, our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee selects dozens of non-profit organizations to receive support.
Walking the Walk
At WoodmenLife, we encourage and support efforts by our associates to get involved with their communities. WoodmenLife provides two paid volunteer days off a year, as well as donation matching for associates. Associates also have many opportunities to participate in volunteer opportunities sponsored and organized by WoodmenLife.
National Community Focus
Since 2015, our members have joined together to make a great impact in a singular area: fighting hunger. Our associates have joined in the effort, giving time and money to local hunger charities. Click here for more on our National Community Focus.
