National Catholic Society of Foresters (NCSF), a member-based fraternal organization, was established in 1891 to reach out and help Catholics in communities throughout the United States. We do this by offering life insurance and retirement products along with valuable member benefits that support the growth of strong communities. Headquartered in Mount Prospect-IL, NCSF is licensed to do business in 17 states.

As a member of our not-for-profit Society, the money that would normally be paid to shareholders in a for-profit company is instead given back to NCSF member parishes and communities in the form of programs and benefits made possible by insurance sales. Also awarded annually to members are 10 Catholic preschool, 30 Catholic grade school, 30 Catholic high school, and twenty Religious Education grants.
