The Woodmen of the World connection
Woodmen of the World created Red Basket in 2012 as a way to bring their current model of community giving into the digital age. When individuals buy a life insurance product from Woodmen of the World, they become members and they pay dues into their local chapter. Woodmen of the World is not-for-profit, so the dues money and any profits go back to the members and the chapters. Members who run the local chapters organize service projects and social activities to benefit fellow members and their communities at-large.
As a way to reach more people and update the structure, Woodmen of the World created Red Basket. The new organization still follows the basic premise of members helping members, but allows for a whole new generation of people to get involved.
