Our Society is steeped in history and tradition. Members have included prominent citizens of the Philadelphia community as well as national leaders. And like any other organization, the Friendly Sons needs the ongoing commitment and active participation of its members to ensure it remains vital and relevant in an ever changing world.

As we celebrate our 247th anniversary, we ask that you join in perpetuating the success of the Society. Doing so is simple. Please make every effort to attend our quarterly meetings and events; lend your talents to the organization by joining one of our committees; and most importantly, help the Society continue to grow by recruiting new candidates for membership.

The Internal Revenue Service has determined that the Society is exempt from Federal Income Tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the code.
