The Gold Book & Philanthropic Society
Brethren: Reacquaint yourself with the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania by visiting it again or for the first time. Bring family, relatives and friends. See the Masonic Temple of today standing in grandeur on a corner of Philadelphia once occupied by a coal yard with cobblestone streets. You will then know why it has been called one of the great wonders of the Masonic World.
The philanthropic Society Endowment Fund contributions that are received are used to maintain and preserve this beautiful architectural wonder. It exemplifies the heritage and tradition of Pennsylvania Masonry.
The Benjamin Franklin room, with its huge bronze doors, each weighting one ton; the Masonic Library and Museum that houses one of the finest collections of Masonic Treasures in the world, which includes Bro. George Washington's Masonic Apron. There are seven elegant Lodge Rooms.
This is the perfect time of the year for you to be thinking of a tax deduction and there is no better way for you to give to the Gold Book or Philanthropic Societies, to help preseve and maintain this great building. Remember $500 will place your name in the Gold Book and no amount is too small to get you started. You can build up your contributions on a monthly, semi-annual or annual basis. When you reach the $500 level, your name will automatically be placed in the Gold Book. Why not send your contribution today?
The Philanthropic Society is yet another way for you to preserve this great building. By mailing a gift of whatever amount you would like to give, this money will not be used until there is ten million dollars in the endowment fund and then only the interest will be used.
"Team Work" - Coming together is a beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is success.
