Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma
The Masonic Charity Foundation is the 2012 Recipient of the Journal Record Beacon Award for Charitble Organizations and The Oklahoma Department of Human Services Small Business Partner of the Year for work with the Oklahoma Association of Area Agencises on Aging (O4A).
The Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma is the primary charitable and educational organization of Oklahoma Freemasonry. As a 501-(c)-3 organization, we support many programs in the State. We feel a special responsibility to care for our members, of course, when age or illness or disaster have given them extra burdens to carry, but the majority of our giving goes to people who have no connection with the Masonic fraternity at all.
We have programs with Prevent Blindness Oklahoma to protect the eyesight of school children, programs which give scholarships to young men and women going to college, programs to reward academics and recognize outstanding teachers. Until changing social conditions made them unnecessary, we provided orphanages and homes for aged members. Now, our Promises Matter program extends a helping hand to many more Brothers and Sisters. One of our most important programs is the Lodge Matching Fund program. Through the program, local Masonic Lodges can raise funds for local charitable and educational needs, and we'll match the funds they raise, actually doubling the good done in the community.
There is much more to the story of the Masonic Charity Foundation of Oklahoma, we invite you to browse through the web site http://www.mcfok.org. Please consider leaving a gift to the Foundation in your Will. Such gifts are given only when you no longer have need for the funds, but they make a most important difference in the lives of thousands of people. Contributions to the Masonic Charity Foundation are tax deductible. And what those contributions “purchase” is priceless.
