Giving through your Will, or trust, by naming the Masonic Children’s Home as the beneficiary of your IRA, retirement plan, annuity or life insurance (easily print out our bequest language, and share it with your advisor to include the children’s home in your estate plan)
Office of Mission Advancement and Development
If you are considering a planned gift, visit our Masonic Charities planned giving website with valuable tools to learn how to get started in realizing your personal and charitable goals. Explore a free Estate Planning Guide and Wills Planner, where you can securely establish your own estate plan to share with your attorney or one of our recommended attorneys. This site is a must-see if you’re preparing or updating your estate plan or making more than a cash gift to our Masonic Children’s Home.
If you have included or intend to include the Masonic Children’s Home in your estate plan, consider joining the Franklin Legacy Society. Members enjoy the benefits of an invitation to the annual donor recognition dinner, recognition on the donor recognition wall and in the Annual Report and receipt of a handsome book clock and a pin, which depicts Ben Franklin working at his printing press.
