Doing Good With the Do-Good Grant

Members use fraternal benefit to sew and donate winter hats for local students.

Do-Good Grant

Fleece hats keep students warm

Thanks to a happy coincidence, Kimberly Case, a member from Austin, Minnesota, made local elementary students a little cozier in the winter.

One day, while online using Pinterest, she saved a craft project for sewn hats. She intended to make some for her daughters. When she visited the elementary school later that day, her intentions turned fraternal. She found a tote of hats the school gives to children in need – but the tote was only half full.

“I thought it would be a good idea to make hats for the school,” Kimberly explains. “And then, the very next day, I read about the Do-Good Grant in The Modern Woodmen magazine. It was meant to be!”

After applying for and receiving the Do-Good Grant, Kimberly recruited one of her daughters to help. Their connections got them a loaned sewing machine and space to work. She found deals to purchase the fleece hat fabric and invited a few high school students. Then the group got to work.

When they finished, they had 102 hats to donate to the elementary school. Sewing and delivering the hats was a rousing success, despite the busy holiday season. The group felt the impact immediately.

“We received many thanks,” she says. “I would definitely do it again!”

We received many thanks. I would definitely do it again!

Your turn

Are you a member interested in fraternalism, but not currently active in a local chapter, Summit chapter or youth service club?

The Do-Good Grant helps members give back to the causes they care about – on their own or with friends and family.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Decide on a project idea.
  2. Apply on the member website (member.modernwoodmen.org) and wait for approval.
  3. Receive a $100 prepaid card to purchase supplies for the project, an in-depth project guide to help coordinate the event, five free T-shirts for participants, and other physical and digital resources to make the event a success.
  4. Plan and hold the event.
  5. Submit a follow-up report to Modern Woodmen’s Fraternal Department.

Up to 500 Do-Good Grants are awarded each year, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
