IOOF Sonora is grateful for each and every donation, regardless of amount. 

No goods or services can be received by the donor for the donation.

*Facilitates clean-up and care days at the cemetery
*Gathers, wraps and delivers the presents for the annual  foster youth holiday party

WHAT WE DO
IN THE NEWS
IOOF Sonora has always been a charitable organization committed to providing services to our local county citizens.  The Sonora Odd Fellows Foundation was started to provide donors with the confidence their donations are used exactly the way they intended and that their contributions are tax-deductible.


IOOF Sonora is one of the oldest community service organizations in the county, having been estabished in 1853. IOOF Sonora believes communities should take care of each other, and we provide services to further our original mission to: educate orphans (now current and former foster youth), to take care of the sick and elderly, and to bury the dead, as IOOF was established long before social services programs existed to do so.  

IOOF Sonora believes in solidary, not charity, and is always looking to partner with businesses who will support our mission and help us bring our business to them in return. 

IOOF Sonora remains committed to the philosophy of taking care of each other, and holds fundraisers and events to raise funds to provide those services to the less fortunate in our community.  Look for our Living History Tour and Burns Supper each year!
