More than six years ago, the Kansas Masonic Foundation created the Freemasons Endowment (Fulfilling Our Obligation) to help our Brothers, Widows and Orphans in their time of need. This Endowment was fully funded at $1.5 million in 2019.
FULFILLING OUR OBLIGATION PROGRAM is the keystone charity in accomplishing our mission of being a Fraternity that strives to meet our Masonic Obligation to help our members. Every dollar donated goes to helping those who face incredible hardships. Whether it be a natural disaster or personal tragedy, the fund exists to make certain a helping hand is there in times of crisis.
Considering the current economic and health environment attributed to the Coronavirus, Masons and their families may face even greater challenges. The Kansas Masonic Foundation, along with the MW Grand Lodge of Kansas, is therefore expanding our reach to even better fulfill our obligation during these uncertain times.
A new program, Almoner’s Fund, has been developed to provide immediate assistance to those in need. The program will provide up to $250 per Mason. This program can be accessed either from the Kansas Masonic Foundation website www.KansasMasonic.Foundation or by calling the KMF Offices (785-357-7646). The money will be delivered via direct deposit into your checking account or by check, depending on urgency of need. This program is completely anonymous with only KMF, Lodge Master and Secretary aware of the request.
Please continue your valuable support of the Kansas Masonic Foundation. This will enable us to continue to provide the level of Masonic Charity to our Members, Kansans and Kansas Community’s as part of our philanthropic work.
