Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

First, and perhaps most importantly, Moose Charities serves to centralize and coordinate all charitable fundraising activities. This means that Mooseheart and Moosehaven do not need to dedicate their staff or financial resources in the pursuit of charitable funding and can more fully concentrate on delivering quality services to our children and seniors. Other benefits include the coordination of fundraising efforts and the centralization of all fundraising processes. This significantly eases the burden and costs associated with compliance to charitable regulations and brings greater efficiency (i.e., reduced cost) to our fundraising processes.

The professional staff of Moose Charities stands ready to assist donors who may be interested in completion of a Will or in planning gifts such as bequests, charitable trusts, and charitable gift annuities, etc., and in helping them attain the fullest realization of their personal and charitable interests. Additionally, Moose Charities can offer expertise and support to Moose lodges, chapters, associations and other fraternal units who conduct fund-raising efforts. Moose Charities completes these strategies with a full array of national or local fundraising programs or projects targeted at individual specific needs.

Moose Charities exists because of the heartfelt interest Moose members have in their two worthy and noble charitable endeavors at Mooseheart and Moosehaven. The strength of their loyal and compassionate support has made it possible. As a public charity, Moose Charities can receive charitable gifts from all sources. From staff guidance to “How To" booklets, Moose Charities is prepared to facilitate the fund-raising process at the grass roots level.

Since its founding in 1913, Mooseheart's charter is to nurture and enrich the lives of at risk youth by providing a secure residential and school community; offering opportunities to experience the joys of childhood; teaching the value of integrity; and recognition and development of their unique gifts. They become functioning and productive members of society. Though as in life, Mooseheart has not been 100% successful with the 11,000 children that have entered its doors, many of our Alumni have become fabulously successful in business, trades, education, social work, military, and the arts. Since 1995, Moose Charities has been the primary funding source for these accomplishments.

On the other end of the age spectrum, Moose Charities has performed the same role for Moosehaven, a retirement community that has serviced the needs of the elderly Moose members that have come there to live out their remaining years in a sheltered environment since 1928. Societal burdens have been equally alleviated as at Mooseheart, through the ongoing and end-of-life care of its residents, regardless of their personal financial capabilities.
