The Grand Almoner’s Fund and the Commander’s Circle
As the Membership and Leadership Team Leaders, we want to introduce you to a new initiative to continue to care for our members. “We will strive to be a fraternity that fulfills our Masonic obligation to care for our members.” This pledge is being lived out today through the reinvigoration of the Scottish Rite Grand Almoner’s Fund. The renewed and strengthened Grand Almoner’s Fund has made an important difference in the lives of members and their families. Since 2009, when the more active Fund was introduced, our members have faced disasters of floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and other debilitating hardships, proving that this effort could not have come at a better time. As we look to the future, the fraternity must be prepared to fulfill this vision to care for our members and to meet the challenges that they face. The Scottish Rite Benevolent Foundation seeks to raise at least $10,000,000 to be duly repared to lend support to members as they face natural and other disasters.
To commemorate the milestone of two centuries of Scottish Rite Freemasonry and to firmly recommit the fraternity to the values that defined its founding, Sovereign Grand Commander John Wm. McNaughton, 33 °, has commissioned a special honor that will recognize its most generous Brothers. The Commander’s Circle will recognize supporters of the Grand Almoner’s Fund.
