About THE MASONIC FOUNDATION OF ALBERTA
The Masonic Foundation of Alberta was formed in principle as a result of resolutions passed at the 1989 and 1990 Grand Lodge of Alberta Communications. Previous to that date a Grand Master’s committee was struck to begin the process of establishing a Masonic Charitable Foundation in Alberta. It was from the roots of that committee that, in 1991, was brought about the formal organization and structure of the Foundation. While the Foundation has a number of objectives (indicated in the Official Brochure of the Foundation), the two basic objectives are:
•To encourage, stimulate and assist financially, various Lodges that have identified particular Charitable projects. It is the hope of the foundation that it can match financially the funds raised by the local Lodge for a specific registered charity.
•To identify worthy charitable projects that can be funded directly by the Foundation. These projects, which are focused upon helping young people, can either be long term or short term.
