WHAT DOES MASONRY DO FOR THE COMMUNITY


The FRATERNITY of Free and Accepted Masons is the oldest, largest, and most widely known
fraternal organization in the world. Masonry was founded on the principles of brotherly love, relief and truth
and takes seriously its responsibility to help others. Symbolic Lodge Masonry in Ohio, as well as the related
organizations, have adopted numerous charitable programs which they support strongly. In fact, the Masonic
Fraternity in the United States DAILY contributes more than $2 million to charitable causes.

OHIO MASONIC HOME


The Ohio Masonic Home’s family of services is dedicated to helping seniors through a wide range of
options. From the retirement campuses located in three areas of the state to home-based services, their caring,
knowledgeable staff is dedicated to serving you where you want to be. The retirement campuses – Springfield
Masonic Community in Springfield, Browning Masonic Community in Waterville near Toledo and
Western Reserve Masonic Community in Medina near Cleveland – are where you can forget about the
worries of home ownership and enjoy what life offers. Or take care of your needs through their assisted living
services, skilled nursing or rehabilitation services. If you prefer to stay independent in your own home, the
Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center can make life easier or more comfortable through a variety of services.
Find which service will best suit you or your loved one’s needs, call The Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center
at 877-881-1623 or visit their web sites at omhresourcecenter.org

GRAND LODGE OF F&AM OF OHIO


The Grand Lodge of Ohio offers annually two college scholarships in each of its 25 Masonic Districts.
Ohio Masons have also become major supporters of the Ohio Special Olympics, contributing more than
$100,000 every year.
The Masonic Model Student Assistance Program is a gift from the Freemasons of Ohio to the schools
in their communities. The program consists of a three-day intensive training seminar that enables core teams
of faculty and staff members to effectively identify and refer at-risk youth.

SHRINE MASONS
Shriners Hospitals for Children is a network of pediatric specialty hospitals, founded by the Shrine, where
children receive excellent medical care. There are 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children providing care for
orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate. If the Children are covered by
insurance, the shrine hospitals now collect those funds but they do NOT bill parents/guardians for care. To date
the Shriners have spent over $3 Billion dollars on hospital operating costs.

SCOTTISH RITE MASONS


Helping children with speech and language disorders is a particular mission of Scottish Rite. They have
established many Children Dyslexia Centers throughout the United States. In creating the Children’s Dyslexia
Center, Valley of Dayton at the Dayton Masonic Temple, it has been their mission to provide professional
treatment - free of charge - to children with dyslexia. All services are available regardless of race, creed, or
Masonic relationship.

OTHER MASONIC CHARITIES


The Royal Arch Masons support Adopt America Network which finds homes for Special Needs
Children; the Royal and Select Masons support programs to help juveniles with diabetes; the Knights Templar
fund a philanthropic eye foundation; the Tall Cedars of Lebanon assists Muscular Dystrophy research; and the
Grotto provides dental care for children with special needs.
