The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is an international fraternal organization that was established in 1819 by Thomas Wildey in Baltimore, Maryland.

The IOOF confers degrees of differing levels to its membership upon the demonstration and active promotion of philanthropy, charity, and the ethic of reciprocity through fundraising, acts of service, and their own charitable works.

The levels include:

Lodge degrees:
Initiatory (White degree)
Friendship (First degree, Pink degree)
“Brotherly” Love (Second degree, Blue degree)
Truth (Third degree, Scarlet degree)

Encampment degrees:
