Established in 1913, is a unit of Moose International, Inc. We are a private organization open only to our members and their qualified quests. Membership is by invitation only. Women, over the age of twenty-one, who are interested in joining, can make application for membership into any one of over 1600 local Chapters throughout the United States and Canada.

The Women of the Moose provides social, sports, family and community service opportunities in a fraternal setting. Members of the Women of the Moose dedicate many volunteer hours to those in need, not only in their own Chapter and Lodges, but more importantly, to those in the community.

Other programs which are proudly supported by the Women of the Moose include Scouting, drug awareness, crime prevention, adopt a highway, adopt a park, youth and adult sports leagues, scholarship programs, toys for needy children, feeding the hungry and disaster relief efforts. The Women of the Moose also provide assistance to countless national charities such as MDA, Arthritis Foundation, American Cancer and Heart Associations and veterans organizations to name just a few.

The two main objectives of the Women of the Moose are Mooseheart and Moosehaven. The maintenance and financial support of these two communities comes almost solely from the men and women of the Moose Fraternity.

Mooseheart, our "Child City" is located in the Fox River Valley, west of Chicago Illinois. It is a 1,200 acre campus where children in need are housed, educated and cared for in a loving home environment and are raised by professionally trained family teachers.

Moosehaven, our "City of Contentment" is located in Orange Park, Florida. This is where the Moose Fraternity provides for the cares and needs of our senior members. Currently, a health care facility, called The Life Care Center, is being built which will provide state of the art medical care to Moosehaven residents.

Other objectives of the Women of the Moose include:

Conducting a myriad of Community Service projects that have resulted in a total value of more than $40 million annually.

Working together to give a helping hand to members and their families in time of need.

Each Women of the Moose Chapter is guided by a six member volunteer Board of Officers elected by the membership. Monthly meetings include Chapter Night where new candidates are enrolled, Business Meetings where the Chapter members approve plans for events, ballot on new members and vote on finances of the Chapter, and Committee Meetings when plans for future projects and events are discussed. Members of the Chapter are encouraged to attend these meetings. The Chapter Board of Officers meets once a month to remit required paperwork and to form proposals for projects and events that are voted on by Chapter members. The Chapter Board of Officers works closely with the Board of Officers of the Loyal Order of Moose to provide family, social and fund raising opportunities.

The rules and guidelines for the Women of the Moose are established at International Headquarters under the leadership of Grand Chancellor Tonie Ewoldt. Four Directors, also based at International Headquarters, report to the Grand Chancellor and administer Women of the Moose functions in Finance, Chapter Development, Sports and Ritual, and Membership Training.
