Fraternal Order of Eagles

People helping people,
grass-roots support . . .

  


The Texas Fraternal Order of Eagles made THI their 2009-2010 State Project.
Fraternal Order of Eagles State Project benefits Texas Heart Institute.

The Fraternal Order of Eagles (FOE) is an international non-profit organization, whose mission statement says it "unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope."

The Texas FOE Aeries and Auxiliaries certainly soared in that mission when they made the Texas Heart Institute their 2009-2010 State Project. Local Aeries around the state held fish fries, barbeques and other fund-raisers and during a ceremony in San Antonio, presented the fruits of those labors to THI's CEO Marc Mattsson.

"The Eagles are hometown builders," says their website. "We support our police, firefighters, and others who protect and serve. We fund medical research ... we help raise money for our communities ... we are the Eagles ... we are 'People Helping People'."

It is this kind of grass-roots support that looms large in helping THI carry out its own mission helping people to prevent and better treat cardiovascular disease. Every gift counts.
