Santa Rosa Odd Fellows #53

Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF)

We are a fraternal order dedicated to some very serious principles. We aim to elevate the character of man. We pledge to visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead, and educate the orphan.  The Rebekahs started out as our female counterparts. Today men and women can join either the Odd Fellows, Rebekahs, or both.

Our mission is to improve and elevate the character of mankind. We do so by providing educational scholarships, youth-related support and more.Through the Odd Fellows Hall we offer a reasonably priced gathering space for meetings and events that celebrate and honor our humanity. The hall also serves, when needed, as an American Red Cross emergency shelter.

The Santa Rosa Odd Fellows Hall is owned by Santa Rosa Odd Fellows Lodge #53. We are a fraternal organization of men and women who engage in a variety of activities in the service to the Santa Rosa community. We are a 501(c)(8). Charitable Organization. For more than 150 years we have supported various charitable and non-profit organizations, including Hanna Boys Center, the Earl Baum Center for the Blind, Salvation Army, and local food bank, FISH.

We  also provide members with aid when suffering for the needs of life because of illness, unemployment, or other misfortunes.
