Education Outreach – Workshops and Educational Programs for individuals and families to improve awareness of physical, social, and financial aspects of aging, to help individuals plan for their future, and to learn how to access their resources.
Washington Masonic Charities is proud to partner with the Grand Lodge of Washington to offer scholarships for deserving young people throughout the state of Washington. Masons believe strongly in investing in the education of young people - tens of thousands of dollars a year in scholarships are provided to youth by Masonic Lodges across the state. We've also made it convenient for you to support these students.
Every child deserves the opportunity to be safe, to learn and to grow. The Children & Youth Programs has several initiatives that assist children and grandchildren of Mason’s, as well as community members. The support of and investment in children and youth is a priority for the Freemasons of Washington.
Getting older can be tough on families. It is hard for us or our parents to admit that we need help, and even harder to think about the possibility of losing our independence. We have a new program geared toward both older adults as well as adults whose parents are aging and may need assistance. This workshop is an opportunity to ask questions, get information, and create a plan. You'll be surprised at what is possible.
It is with great pleasure that the Washington Masonic Charities Scholarship committee announces the scholarship recipients for 2017. Applications were received from across the state and were evaluated at the local Masonic Lodge level, the Masonic district level, and then finally by the Scholarship Committee for Washington Masonic Charities.
