The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes is a Philanthropic Organization which is active, not only in its local community, but, at all levels of Society.
It is non-political, nor does it look to religion to inspire participation. It does, however, inspire members to commit to a peaceful and meaningful way of life.
It is often described as an extended family, a social organization or a mutually supportive group of like-minded people; each true in its own way, they do not adequately describe the true picture: that is painted on a much larger canvas.
