Fraternal Organizations

« Back to Projects Dashboard

A fraternity or fraternal organization is an organized society of men associated together in an environment of companionship and brotherhood; dedicated to the intellectual, physical, and social development of its members.

Goal

This project is intended to be the 'main' or portal to all Fraternal and Benevolent societies and organizations. The goal is to make sub-projects of the individual organizations as warranted. Please feel free to start a sub-project if and when you think one is needed.

The following is a list of general fraternities. Some of them already have their own projects.
