As a life insurer for more than 120 years, Royal Neighbors continues to be guided by this important commitment to women and those they care about. Our team is aligned in its vision of creating an insurance organization that is truly different and focused on giving back.
Our growth and commitment to women and those they care about remain strong due to the dedicated leadership at Royal Neighbors. The executive team is driven to excellence and is involved in the mission of Royal Neighbors.
The Royal Neighbors Foundation is a philanthropic not for profit corporation. We were established by Royal Neighbors of America® in 2002 as 501(c)(3) public charity to provide financial education and support causes that empower women and their families.
Our unique mission of insuring lives, supporting women and serving communities stems from being a fraternal benefit society and an organization with a dual mission of both providing financial protection through life insurance and “neighbor-helping-neighbor” community service.
By joining a Royal Neighbors chapter in your area you can work with a group of people who share your desire to help others. It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s a great way to create positive change where you live.
Want to change your corner of the world? The Difference Maker Fund is a program that offers Royal Neighbors members $200 in seed money to support a community project that aligns with Royal Neighbors’ mission of empowering women and girls.
The Member Relief Fund is a member benefit we hope you never have to use…but it’s there if you need it. It provides financial assistance to qualifying members who experience major illnesses or property damage due to natural disasters.
Royal Neighbors offers a variety of traditional and non-traditional scholarships. Since its creation in 1961, Royal Neighbors of America Scholarship program has awarded more than $5 million to its members to assist with the costs of continuing education.
We are a life insurer that believes we are more than a nation of individuals; we are a nation of neighbors. So we have a dual mission to financially protect our members and their families, and to support “neighbor-helping-neighbor” activities that improve your community.
