Capital Campaign
Our Challenge, Our Vision
Yesterday's Legacy is the history of Freemason's dedication to responsibility, action and philanthropy. It has spanned the centuries, and despite tremendous changes and constant challenges, this commitment to excellence is apparent in the mission of each of the Masonic Charities, delivering the highest quality services in the most magnificent and compassionate environments. Lives are changed everyday through the benevolence of Freemasonry.

We have a bold vision and a steadfast plan for ensuring Tomorrow's Promise. We have launched our first -ever Capital Campaign to raise $50,000,000.

The need is imminent.
The time is now.

Together we can continue to meet the needs of our Family of Freemasonry and our communities, while honoring and preserving the traditions and standards of service that are the hallmark of Freemason's Worldwide.

Please join the Campaign Steering Committee, Grand Lodge Officers, and the Masonic Charities staff from across the state who have pledged more than $47 million to preserve Yesterday's Legacy and ensure Tomorrow's Promise.

Dedicated in the fall of 1873, the magnificent
Temple is recognized by Masons from around the world as an
architectural wonder and a symbol of the ideals of brotherhood,
charity, morality and education. It is a beacon for a "most honorable
Fraternity" and a National Historic Landmark.
Our Caring Communities
Costs to provide quality charitable care and services to seniors and youth have increased, yet we must seek to guarantee that no member of our Family of Freemasonry or their families is ever turned away from the vital support and care they need.
Masonic Villages

More than 2,400 residents enjoy comfort, companionship,
dignity, security and vitality through a full range of nursing,
assisted living and residential or retirement living services at
the villages in Dallas, Elizabethtown, Lafayette
Hill, Sewickley and Warminster.
Masonic Children's Home

On the Elizabethtown campus, between 30 and 40 school-aged youth
are provided with support, guidance and the skills
necessary to help them become productive citizens.
Pennsylvania Masonic
Youth Foundation

The foundation provides education, leadership and character
building activities to youth groups. It also supports programs
that combat substance abuse, bullying and the abduction of children.
Together we can ...
preserve the majesty and splendor of the Masonic Temple, invest in our youth, and provide the quality care our seniors need and deserve.
