REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD Masonic Home of Missouri On page 14 of the 1941 Official Proceedings, then Grand Master Harry S. Truman stated: “The Masonic Home of Missouri, in my opinion, is reason enough for the existence of the Masonic Fraternity”. First created in 1889, the Masonic Home celebrated its 125th Anniversary last year. I am pleased to report that the Masonic Home continues to carry out its mission to assist eligible adults and children in need by practicing the principles of Freemasonry. Before presenting the usual Report information for the Masonic Home’s activities for the past year, baseless rumors and misinformation circulating recently among the Craft unfortunately compel me to begin this Report by setting the record straight. These are the facts:

MASONIC HOME/GRAND LODGE RELATIONSHIP •

The Masonic Home is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation formed by the general membership of the Grand Lodge of Missouri to carry out certain charitable, philanthropic, and educational activities as authorized by federal and state law and by the applicable By-Laws adopted by the general membership of the Grand Lodge.
