Do you enjoy outreach efforts, organizing volunteers, planning events and fundraisers?
We need you to engage our current members and encourage their participation in fraternal member activities that benefit the community. You will also work closely with our marketing and sales force to attract new members.
Our fraternal benefits include charitable fundraising grants, tuition grants, scholarships and many other philanthropic efforts.
Most of our fraternal and social activities are at local groups or committees called “courts”, usually in conjunction with — but independent of — neighborhood parishes. They elect officers, plan and carry out programs and events, and offer help to those in need. Volunteer members provide leadership, plan social and charitable activities, organize youth programs, and work for the betterment of their parishes, schools, and communities.
Sound interesting? Join us and help us build our member community and insure the long-term growth of our fraternal benefit society.

About National Catholic Society of Foresters
National Catholic Society of Foresters (NCSF), a member-based fraternal organization, was established in 1891 to reach out and help Catholics in communities throughout the United States secure their future. We do this by making available life insurance products and retirement products along with valuable member benefits that support the growth of strong communities.As a fraternal Society, the sales from these financial services products help fund member benefits along with social, educational, and volunteer programs designed to respond to community needs. The money that would normally be paid to shareholders in a for-profit company is instead given back to NCSF member communities in the form of programs and benefits made possible by insurance sales.
