Independent Order of

Odd Fellows (IOOF)


We are a fraternal order dedicated to some very serious principles. We aim to elevate the character of man. We pledge to visit the sick, bury the dead, educate the orphan and relieve the distressed. The Rebekahs started out as our female counterparts. Today men and women can join either the Odd Fellows or Rebekahs, or both.

Our symbol is three links with F, L and T in them. That stands for Friendship, Love and Truth. These are the foundations of our Order. Odd Fellows and Rebekahs spend over $775 million in relief projects annually. We have lodges in 26 countries.
