Your act of generosity, our Masonic Legacy.

With planned giving, you can provide long-lasting support for Minnesota Masonic Charities while enjoying financial benefits for yourself

The Pillars Society

The Pillars Society recognizes those individuals who have chosen to leave a lasting charitable and Masonic legacy by including the Minnesota Masonic Charities in their will, trust or estate plan. The Pillars Society honors its individual members' charitable passions while establishing its members as philanthropic role models in our Masonic community.

By entrusting gifts to Minnesota Masonic Charities, donors can be certain that their contributions will be used wisely to address future fraternal obligations, community needs and that their personal Masonic legacies will be extended far beyond their lifetimes. (or "beyond the grave through the boundless realm of eternity")

We want to recognize donors, provide opportunities for members to learn more about the community's needs and better connect with Minnesota Masonic Charities' programs and services. Your planned gift to Minnesota Masonic Charities will have meaning and impact for generations to come.
