Planned Giving

Planned giving plays a crucial role in sustaining the Foundation.  Your gift directly supports Maine Masonic philanthropy, and you have options in directing your donation. For instance, you may choose to have your gift used for relief and/or matching grant needs immediately, or perhaps you would prefer to have your donation added to our endowment, thus generating investment income that will be used to support the continuing philanthropic efforts of Freemasons in Maine.

There are multiple ways to give and many different assets you can use. From a simple bequest to more complex arrangements, we welcome the opportunity to assist you and your advisors in planning a contribution that suits your particular needs.
