The Royal Arcanum is the only surviving founding member of the American Fraternal Alliance (formerly the National Fraternal Congress of America), an organization representing 70 fraternal benefit societies and millions of fraternalists.

Founded with unselfish motives on the part of its creators, conducted upon sound business principles, improved by an experience of over One Hundred and Thirty Five years, it has all the facilities for successfully promoting its objectives. Those objectives include:

Uniting fraternally all eligible male and female persons of sound bodily health and good moral standing, who are socially acceptable.

Giving moral and material aid in its power to its members and those dependent on them.

Teaching morality without religious distinction, patriotism without partisanship, and brotherhood without creed or class.

Educating the members socially, morally and intellectually.

Assisting the families of deceased members.

Establishing funds for the payment of Death Benefits, Educational Loans and Annuities.
