WFLA reaches 118 years of service!
Western Fraternal Life Association is a not-for-profit financial services company that uses its profits to do community service projects and provide benefits to members. What better way to combine financial security for your family with the rewards of volunteering in your own community, with assistance from lodges.
WFLA was originally founded July 4, 1897 to serve Bohemian immigrants, including women and children. Today wfla membership is available for anyone supporting the purpose of the Association and who purchases a life insurance or annuity product. WFLA instills a volunteer spirit in its members through the lodge system.
Every day, wfla volunteers in 17 states supplement the social services provided by overburdened government agencies - serving children, the elderly, veterans, the underprivileged, and other families and individuals who need help. Members join together to help with projects such as community fundraisers, activities to preserve the environment, and partnering with local schools. Members also participate in fun family activities such as ball games, picnics, festivals, and parties. The amount of involvement is the member’s choice. WFLA membership provides a social outlet, as well as the opportunity to give back to the community.
While WFLA has always reached out to involve young members and create a new generation of wfla leaders, newly developed Young Engaged Lodge Leaders (YELL!) groups are formed in several communities with that specific purpose. The mission of the YELL! groups are to volunteer time and talents to worthy causes, serve the community to help fulfill its needs, connect with other youth and adults, and contribute to wfla’s mission of service.
