About the Grange

National Grange

The National Grange was founded in 1867 as a fraternal organization for farm families. From its beginnings, women had full voice and vote and could hold any office. Today, our nearly 160,000 members across the country – primarily affiliated with local Granges – provide millions of hours of service to their communities and dollars to those in need.

While we are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, because of the membership element central to our fraternal structure, we are designated as a 501(c)5 nonprofit organization by the IRS.

Membership is truly open to the whole family. Our Junior Grange is for children ages 5-14 and younger children are always welcome at Grange meetings with their parents and grandparents. At age 14, young men and women are eligible to join the Grange as adult members, but special services, activities and programs are in place to enhance the leadership skills and help youth members 14-35 develop to their fullest potential.
