What Corporate Citizenship Means to Us

Woodmen of the World has been part of the fabric of the Omaha community for more than 100 years, and our respect and commitment to the communities where we live and work is just as long-standing.

Woodmen of the World believes that being a good corporate citizen means demonstrating this respect by donating time and money to organizations in the Omaha and Council Bluffs areas that make a positive difference.
