Greetings from your Ohio Masonic Home Foundation! We hope your holidays were filled with family, friends, and fellowship.

The start of a new year often brings a time for reflection and a time for excitement. It is a time to look back on everything we’ve accomplished while eagerly anticipating what is to come. As we reflect on 2021, we at The Ohio Masonic Home Foundation are grateful for the generosity, commitment, and support from our volunteers, residents, clients, and donors.

If you were near the Foundation offices at year-end, you might have heard the distinct chime of a bell ringing in the corridor, “Ding. Ding. Ding!” After a year of incredible growth and kindness, the team was celebrating all that had been accomplished.

Additional reflection showed a new level of giving was achieved for two reasons: the commitment of long-time supporters and the new support of donors who gave to us for the first time or after many years of not giving.

Making a gift feels good – just writing the check and putting it in the mail is rewarding for me. Caring for others is part of our Masonic obligation. When I have a good year, I want to pass it along to others… and it was a good year.

Because of the generosity of brothers like the one paraphrased above, our 650+ community members across all three campuses are warm, safe, and connected to people who care for them. Your gifts to The Ohio Masonic Home make that possible.

As we look toward 2022 and beyond, we reflect on what we share with you each quarter. You’ve told us how you enjoy learning about our residents and clients, their hobbies, and their stories. Your feedback has been that you want to feel the impact, and your input will continue to shape our messages to you. Our commitment is to share powerful stories of kindness and relief through the eyes of our donors and those we serve.

Each quarter, you’ll learn more about how the gifts of time and treasure you make impact Masons, their widows, and countless others across the State of Ohio.

We have big goals for 2022 and we are actively recruiting new supporters! We are inviting the more than 50,000 Ohio Masons who did not, or could not, donate in 2021 to join our cause. If each of these Brothers could make a gift of $20 or $40, it would double the impact for individuals in need.

We ask that you invite a friend to become a supporter and give prayerful consideration to how you can help our Ohio Masonic Home. May 2022 be your best year ever!
