A Moose member is a man belonging to the Loyal Order of Moose, or a woman belonging to the Woman of the Moose. These members, over 1.6 million strong, make up the two components of the fraternal organization known as Moose International.
Their membership is held in any one of 2,100 Lodges and 1,600 Chapters throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Bermuda. Moose International headquarters is approximately 38 miles west of Chicago at Mooseheart, Illinois.
Men and women join the Order for a variety of reasons including family activities, community service projects, and member sports programs just to name a few. While these activities offer each Moose member a valid reason to join, the main endeavors of the fraternity remain Mooseheart, the 1,200 acre Illinois home and school for children in need; and Moosehaven, the 63 acre Florida retirement community for senior members in need. These residents, entrusted to the care and support provided by membership in the Moose, are constant living reminders of the humanitarian efforts of Moose members.

"GIMME FIVE" - What is it? Nothing more or less than a simple plan to help ensure the future of Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
Five cents - set aside from the change you pour into your pocket or purse in the morning.
Five more cents - set aside from the change you empty from your pocket or purse in the evening.
Just that: a nickel in the morning, a nickel in the evening, set aside and sent to Moose Charities for the kids of Mooseheart and the seniors of Moosehaven.
That's the new "GIMME FIVE" program. It's really nothing more than that!
