As a fraternal benefit society, KSKJ Life has been offering community outreach and charitable support for members and their communities since 1894. Each holiday season we raise funds for a charitable organization that supports active military and/or veterans as part of our annual Supporting Soldiers Campaign.
This year, we partnered with Fisher House Foundation, a 501c3 charity that builds comfort homes where military & veterans’ families can stay when a loved one is in the hospital. Fisher House is a “home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. There are 90 Fisher Houses throughout the US along with the United Kingdom and Germany.
Thanks to all our generous members, agents, lodge officers, and home office staff, we exceeded our goal and raised $5,545 via the online donation page and checks/cash mailed in!
KSKJ Life matched $5,000 in addition to a Christmas bonus gift of $250, making the total donation for Fisher House Foundation $10,795.
Since the KSKJ Supporting Soldiers program was initiated in 2015, we have raised over $28,000 for various charities that support our nation’s troops and veterans.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated!
