Moose International Disaster Relief Fund

The Fund will assist lodges impacted by natural disasters in the form of property damage and loss of business due to temporary closure.

The following guidelines apply:

The Moose Disaster Relief Fund (MDRF) addresses emergency situations that have received an official disaster declaration by either the state/province or the President or Prime Minister. Funds can be used to restore property, pay urgent expenses, reimburse deductibles or fund other items as approved by the MDRF Committee due to loss of business during closure. Examples of natural disasters include, but are not limited to: tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, etc.

The MDRF Committee shall be comprised of the Director General, Chief Financial Officer, General Counsel, Chief Marketing Officer and the Director of Membership.

To be eligible for assistance from the MDRF, Fraternal Units must meet the following requirements:

  • Lodge or Chapter must be in good standing with its Association and Moose International;
  • The Lodge must be covered by an active insurance policy and current with its property and liability payments;
  • The Lodge or Chapter must have incurred loss or damage due solely to a natural disaster and not from damage or deterioration caused by gradual processes such as decay, pollution or erosion, etc. or actions by an individual or object unrelated to a natural disaster;
  • The Lodge or Chapter must submit a MDRF application for financial assistance.

Relief requests will be considered up to $10,000 per incident. Insurance coverage and other local/regional relief fund distributions to the Lodge or Chapter will be considered before any MDRF funds are granted.

Funds may be used to cover insurance deductibles; expenses for which immediate payment is due; funds to cover expenses if business is interrupted; funds to conduct events that have already been scheduled; or rent expense to meet away from the lodge, if closed due to disaster.

The Committee may also approve additional disaster-related expenses at its discretion.

Relief funds are positioned as grants to the Lodge or Chapter, therefore no repayment is required.

No individual member requests for assistance will be accepted.

The Lodge or Chapter has 60 days from the date of the disaster to apply for a MDRF distribution, although the Committee may consider applications filed after 60 days in some unique cases. For ongoing disasters (i.e. wildfires, etc.) the filing should occur within 60 days after the point when damage is assessable.

Individual, Fraternal Unit and Association contributions to the MDRF will not be accepted. (However, Individual, FRU or Association contributions for a specific incident may still be made directly to a FRU which has been impacted by a natural disaster)

To apply for MDRF assistance, please provide:

  • The MDRF application, which must be completed in its entirety.
  • A written description of how the disaster impacted the Lodge or Chapter and for what expenses the requested funds will be used.
  • The name and address of your insurance company and deductible amount must be included. A written assessment from the insurance company and estimate for any repairs should be included if available.
  • Digital photos documenting the damage that occurred for which you are asking assistance should be submitted as noted on the application.
  • Copies of specific bills or expenses for which you are requesting reimbursement, if available.
  • Information on where to forward approved relief funds.
  • A recommendation for assistance from your Territory Manager.
  • The signature of the Administrator or Recorder and one other officer of the Lodge or Chapter.

Questions regarding the MDRF can be forwarded to disasterfund@mooseintl.org; faxed to 630-966-2251; or call 630-966-2226.

New Member Orientation Program

Many of us forget that new members really know very little about how the Fraternity, or for that matter, how an individual lodge or chapter, operates. People want to believe that they joined an organization with a higher purpose, as well as one that celebrates life through activities and friendships at the local level. Use the materials below to supplement the information you will be providing at the local level. Make sure you discuss those areas that are most important for the new member, stay on-point, and make your presentation as interactive as possible.

Lodgic Everyday Community

Supporting communities and kids for over 100 years, Lodgic is a nonprofit initiative of Moose International dedicated to creating access to opportunity for working families, facilitating thriving business, and fostering shared community. Lodgic was created out of a belief that communities can aspire to more, achieve more, and enjoy more when they work together.

This investment into the future of our Moose organization, our fraternal mission and into the lives of future generations is something that only Moose can own. It is three distinct lines of business under one roof, meeting the needs of Millennial parents, today’s child and our local communities. At Lodgic you will find –

New Moose Experience

1. A state-of-the-art flexible workspace environment available to independent workers and small businesses that desire a flexible and convenient workplace for themselves and/or their employees. Our hospitality-first focus generates a dynamic and creative work environment that brings leaders and innovators together under one roof.

2. A unique Moose-branded, flexible learning-oriented childcare experience –designed to accommodate the variable schedules of parents while delivering a high-quality early childhood education experience that instills the values Moose cares about and are found at Mooseheart – caring for others in need, social responsibility, and community contribution.

3. A comfortable, casual social space with intentionally family-focused food and beverage. Serving high-quality, healthy foods at all parts of the day that meet the needs of today’s modern family. Whether the need is for a quick-serve breakfast, a more relaxed lunch or a ready-made family dinner to take home, we have it covered.

4. To compliment all three lines of business, Tommy Moose will lead our development of “Kid Citizens.” A space where children and their parents live out their values through service programs and initiatives that benefit the local community and raise funds for Mooseheart.

This is truly an exciting time to be a Moose! We are expanding our network and setting ourselves up to be positive community influencers for centuries to come. In addition, we are opening up another avenue of financial support for our children at Mooseheart.

For the longevity of the organization, this additional path makes sense and contains just the right amount of Lodgic to succeed!

Safe Surfin’

It should come as no surprise that the fraternity that cares enough about children to make Mooseheart a reality enters the 21st century with protection of children who use the Internet as a key concern. In 2008, the Moose entered into a partnership with the Safe Surfin’ Foundation, a Virginia-based organization which has been a leader in attempts to keep the Internet a safe place for children to explore.

In addition to educating children and their parents on using the Internet safely, support provided by the Moose has enabled Safe Surfin’ to expand its programs to furnishing law enforcement with computer equipment to be used to pursue Internet predators, as well as ballistic vests to protect officers while apprehending these criminals. Moose is also a strong proponent of the EZ Child ID program, which provides parents with an electronic file that contains personal information, electronic fingerprints, photographs and a video file of their children. This information is readily available to law enforcement if a child becomes lost or is abducted.

More information about the Safe Surfin’ Foundation can be found in our Forms/Documents section. To learn how your Lodge/Chapter can be more involved with Safe Surfin’ Foundation, please contact the Safe Surfin’ Foundation directly.

Youth Awareness

For more than 25 years, we have organized high school students into a highly effective speakers’ bureau with the goal of educating preschool and elementary school-aged children on a variety of topics, including drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse, “stranger danger,” bullying and peer pressure, and healthy habits and nutrition.

Through Moose KidsTalks presentations, participants in the program have reached an audience more than 750,000 children throughout North America. Students also have a chance to compete for $30,000 in college scholarship money that is awarded annually through this program.

For more information about how youth can participate and for the Association Youth Awareness Congress Schedule and lists of Loyal Order of Moose & Women of the Moose Youth Awareness Coordinators, please visit our Forms/Documents section.
