The Fraternal Order of Eagles believes every penny donated to our Charity Foundation should benefit the individuals who need it most - that's why we return 100% of all funds raised in the form of grants.
The Diabetes Research Center, which opened Aug. 23, 2014, occupies 1.5 floors (20,000+ sq. ft.) within the John and Mary Pappajohn Biomedical Discovery Building. A team of 100 researchers works daily conducting a variety of research studies centered around maintaining, preventing and, ultimately, curing diabetes.
In 2008, The Fraternal Order of Eagles made a promise to help find a cure for diabetes, pledging $25 million to fund research efforts at the F.O.E. Diabetes Research Center at the University of Iowa. Over the last 10 years, our money has helped fund significant breakthroughs in the field of diabetes. Now, it's time to bring those research efforts to the next level through the Bridge to the Cure.

People Helping Pantries. That's us. Millions of people around the United States and Canada go hungry every day. Grand Worthy President Tom McGrath and Grand Madam President Helen Poehner are asking everyone to make a difference by dropping off non-perishable food items to the Aerie and Auxiliary nearest you throughout the month of October in support of a local food bank. Help us help the millions in need by making a donation.
