The Covington Fraternal Order of Eagles 3998 is a non-profit organization founded on a simple philosophy of Liberty, Truth, Justice and Liberty for all.
The Covington Eagles Aerie #3998 received its charter on May 3, 1981 and the Covington Ladies Auxiliary received charter status on November 9, 1982. At the time the Eagles were located at 98 E. Broadway St. in Covington and moved to the current location at 715 E. Broadway St. in January 1983. This building was remodeled in 2002 to accommodate the current needs of the organization. Today we have approximately 1300 combined members of the Eagles Aerie #3998 and the Ladies Auxiliary.

The History of F.O.E.
The F.O.E. was founded in February, 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician’s strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things.” As numbers grew, members selected the Bald Eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles.” The women’s auxiliary traces its roots to 1927. The Fraternal Order of Eagles includes nearly 800,000 members and more than 1,500 locations across the United States and Canada.
The F.O.E. donates more than $10 million a year to local communities, fundraisers, charities and more. As part of its philosophy, the F.O.E. gives back 100 percent of monies raised in the form of grants. Fundraisers are conducted for eight major charities, including kidney, heart, diabetes, cancer and spinal cord injury funds, a children’s fund, memorial foundation and the Golden Eagle Fund.
