Sowing the seeds...

As a vital part of the philosophy of fraternalism, WSA not only encourages volunteerism, but also supports worthwhile causes financially. All charitable funding is accomplished through our Lodge Activity Funding Program.

This program makes funds available to each active lodge on an annual basis to use toward worthy causes as they see fit. Each lodge uses their LAFP funds as well as individual Lodge treasuries to support the organizations of their choice.

WSA and its lodges have proudly contributed thousands of man hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars to local community organizations.
