Masonic Brotherhood Fund and the Holidays

My Brothers,

As we wind down the year 2015, many of us are contemplating year-end donations, both due to the charitable nature of the season, as well as more personal tax-related reasons. I remind you of our own Masonic Brotherhood Fund as a giving option, with a variety of different meaningful endeavors, all worthy of your contributions. Every dollar counts, and your participation is important. Donations may be made online, through the link below.

Best wishes for the coming Holiday Season, and a Happy New Year!

Sincerely & Fraternally,

R:. W:. Luke Gordon

Orange-Rockland Chairman of the Masonic Brotherhood Fund, Grand Lodge of New York.
