Foundation Benefactors

The Masonic Charity Foundation of Connecticut - The Philanthropic Affiliate of Masonicare

The Masonic Charity Foundation of Connecticut is honored to recognize a distinguished group of donors for their outstanding generosity and commitment to the mission of Masonicare: our Benefactors.

Every October, donors who have made gifts of $10,000 or more to The Masonic Charity Foundation of Connecticut within a 12-month period—or those who have made confirmed bequest intentions—are invited to an elegant luncheon in the Hartog Activities Center at Masonicare at Ashlar Village. Two separate luncheons are held to accommodate our many donors. At each luncheon, new donors are recognized and presented with a special award.
