About Our LOGO
The logo of The Scottish Rite Foundation of Canada combines two elements: the Masonic triangle and a maze containing a stylized human form. The triangle is a symbol of the Deity used around the world. The maze symbolizes the complex road to unravelling the “puzzles of the mind”. The human at the end of the maze suggests the perfectibility of humankind.
About THE SCOTTISH RITE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION OF CANADA
The Scottish Rite Freemasons created the Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation of Canada in 1964, funded by donations and bequests from thousands of members across the country.
From the inception, the Foundation has concentrated its efforts in support of research into the causes of, and hopefully the eventual cure of “puzzles of the mind”, especially as it afflicts children and persons of advanced years. The Foundation concentrates its assistance in research into the causes of “puzzles of the mind” as opposed to active treatment.
Each year, the Foundation disburses the income earned on its endowment funds to medical research and university bursaries. In recent years this disbursement has been approximately $550,000 annually.
Giving has never been easier now that we can accept secure online donations with the assistance of CanadHelps.org.
Donate in memoriam, in honour of family or friends, or to celebrate special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays and holidays.
