Creating Waves of Impact

Royal Neighbors CEO Zarifa Reynolds

Dear Members,

As we reflect on the remarkable journey of the past year, I am filled with gratitude and pride. Our membership has flourished, evolving into a vibrant tapestry of over 265,000 members united by a common mission – to make an impact in our communities.

In 2023, the collective efforts of our 200+ chapters illuminated the power of grassroots volunteerism, with 430,902 volunteer hours dedicated to impacting communities. Together, we achieved a new pinnacle in Social Good, an impressive $31.2 million in philanthropic impact. These numbers underscore the profound impact that our growing membership has in their communities.

At the heart of our organizational strategy lies a commitment to supporting our members through every stage of life. In 2024, we are pleased to share with you two new advantages to membership.

Our new Ensured Legacy Final Expense life insurance product makes life insurance more accessible, ensuring financial peace of mind for more individuals and their loved ones. Additionally, our Charitable Giving Rider empowers members to leave a lasting legacy, forging a path towards meaningful impact for generations to come.

We are pleased to now offer Empathy to beneficiaries. Empathy offers a comprehensive bereavement support solution at no cost — offering peace of mind to members and care for their family members when they need it most.

Our Nation of Neighbors℠ program offers you the opportunity to nominate an influential leader in your community who is making a difference in the lives of women and girls. I invite you to click here and discover the inspiring story of Rita Caviness, whose dedication to ending the exploitation and trafficking of women and girls embodies the essence of our collective mission.

As I read the incredible member stories featured in this magazine, I am reminded of the importance of our five foundational values: faith, courage, unselfishness, endurance, and humility. These values serve as the bedrock upon which our mission and membership stand. Each story personifies these values, inspiring us as we strive to expand our impact across the country.

Thank you for inspiring us every day! You’re the reason we’re Insurance with a Difference.℠
