Moose Legion

Mooseheart is a residential childcare facility located 38 miles west of Chicago. The Child City is a home for children and teens in need, from infancy through high school.

Dedicated in July 1913 by the Moose fraternal organization, Mooseheart cares for youth whose families are unable, for a wide variety of reasons, to care for them.

Some have lost one or both parents; others are living in environments that are simply not conducive to healthy growth and development. Whatever the reason, the men and women of the Moose, through unparalleled generosity and volunteerism, furnish the resources necessary to care for children in need. The Moose fraternity provides children with a wholesome home-like environment and the best possible training and education.

Through the Mooseheart/Moosehaven Endowment fund we are privileged to contribute to the ongoing work at Mooseheart. For those wishing to do even more for our Mooseheart Children there are several programs available on for online donations or donations by mail.

What is the Moose Legion?

Dedicated members of the Loyal Order of Moose continually look for ways to provide even greater service to our children at Mooseheart and our senior members at Moosehaven. The Moose Legion provides a venue for these enthusiastic members to direct and lead special programs that accomplish this fraternal mission.

Who belongs to the Moose Legion? Moose Legionnaires come from all walks of life and occupations. They are leaders in their communities and they prevail in positions of responsibility and leadership within the Moose fraternity. Each Moose Legionnaire believes strongly in doing some good thing for someone each day.

Why should I consider joining the Moose Legion? Membership in the Degree of Service offers you additional opportunities to serve childhood and old age, and opens the door to you and your family for theme parties, sporting events, community service projects and other unique activities available only to members of the Moose Legion. Moose Legion Celebrations are held at various Lodges within the jurisdiction of your Moose Legion, and serve as a means to share ideas and enjoy good times with fellow Moose Legionnaires. Leadership skills may be developed through the Moose Legion Committee of your Lodge or within the Moose Legion jurisdiction.

Membership in the Moose Legion is the stepping stone to the Honorary Degrees of our Order – the Fellowship Degree of Honor and the Pilgrim Degree of Merit. Being called to receive these Honorary Degrees within the Loyal Order of Moose is only possible through recognized achievements in the Lodge and Moose Legion.

How do I join the Moose Legion? Simply complete and sign an application, and have it endorsed by any Moose Legionnaire. Then your sponsor will return the application, along with the required dues as shown, to the Moose Legion Secretary. You will be notified as to the date, time and location of the next Moose Legion conferral ceremony.
