We are excited to be partnering with Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial as one of our sponsors for this year’s Christmas gala! With representatives located across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the members of Modern Woodmen are ready to serve you today.
Modern Woodmen is committed to helping its clients plan for all financial aspects of their future, from insurance and risk management to retirement planning, investment planning, and advanced estate and small-business planning. The organization focuses on achieving financial security in whatever way the client envisions it. In order to create your plan for financial security, Modern Woodmen takes four steps: defining your financial needs and goals, assessing your current financial situation, creating an affordable plan that will grow with you in the future, and implementing and adjusting your plan over time.
When we asked the DFW Managing Partner Tim Smith about Modern Woodmen’s connection to community and philanthropy, his passion was clear. As a fraternal organization, Modern Woodmen is owned and controlled by its members instead of being publically traded or privately held, seeking only business profit. Tim explained that in order to demonstrate their commitment to these community purposes, “we do not conduct nation-wide advertising but instead invest nearly $40 million a year into local communities and organizations. We have partnered with local ISDs, city government, nonprofits, and individual community members in need.” Recently, Modern Woodmen has worked closely with the Denton Police Department to raise nearly $30,000 over the last four years for their summer youth program geared towards at-risk students in Denton ISD middle and high schools.
Philanthropy has been part of Modern Woodmen’s mission since the organization’s inception 134 years ago. Tim told us that this is “something we hang our hat on as being part of our DNA instead of being a part of a marketing campaign.” Tim continued, explaining that “As a fraternal organization, we give selflessly to others because we know that ‘what we send into the lives of others will come back into our own’ as our company creed states.”
At Melody of Hope we are incredibly grateful for having the support of Modern Woodmen since our organization’s founding. Modern Woodmen has attended every Melody of Hope Christmas gala, and has donated at least $2,000 each year. We are looking forward to showcasing this sponsor at the gala in just a few days, and we want to say a heartfelt “thank you” to Tim and his team for all they do.
