Founded nearly 130 years ago by nine pioneering women as a mission-driven, fraternal benefit society, hundreds of thousands of women, men, and children have worked to fulfill the Royal Neighbors mission. Since the first meeting organized by Marie Kirkland in Council Bluffs, Iowa, members have been impacting their neighbors and their communities through grassroots efforts.
