“What is serving God? ‘tis being good to man”
-                                                                                     Benjamin Franklin

The measure of each of us is how we have improved the world by having been alive. Sometimes we are fortunate in what we have given others over our lives. Sometimes we wait and allow our generosity to extend beyond our lives.

The Cornerstone Society

Many of the best known and most important programs initiated through Scottish Rite Charities were made possible through testamentary gifts. The Abbott Scholarships, the National Heritage Museum and the 32 Masonic Learning Centers for Children were supported in whole or in part because people who cared left provisions for Scottish Rite Charities in their wills.
Just as bequests have been the foundation of many of our good works, so too can your intention become the cornerstone of our future. The Cornerstone Society recognizes the commitment of those who have made provisions to support Scottish Rite Charities by including the Scottish Rite Benevolent Foundation in their wills or by naming the Fund as a beneficiary of an insurance policy or retirement account.
