Minnesota Masonic Charities proudly represents the charitable interests of the Minnesota Masonic Family.

Welcome to the resource page for Members of the Masonic Family of Fraternities. Minnesota Masons and Order of the Eastern Star Members may find a number of important documents on this page, as well as information regarding our Matching Grants and Community Scholarships programs.

Matching Grants

The Matching Grants Program was established to encourage Lodge and Chapter activity within the communities of Minnesota, affording Minnesota Masons and Stars the ability to support and connect with the communities in which they live.

MMC provides Matching Grants up to $10,000 per grant and a maximum of $25,000 per Masonic organization in any one calendar year. Matching Grant applications are accepted throughout the calendar year.

Community Scholarships

MMC’s Community Scholarships Program helps create positive community awareness of Minnesota Masonry while providing worthy students throughout Minnesota with financial assistance. Participation is open to all Minnesota Masonic Lodges and Order of the Eastern Star Chapters.

MMC will provide up to $3,000 per Lodge/Chapter on a one-for-one matching basis. Lodges/Chapters may fund additional scholarships in excess of $3,000, but only the first $3,000 contributed by the Lodge or Chapter will be matched by Minnesota Masonic Charities.  Questions? Contact us at 952-948-6200 or scholarships@mnmasonic.org. Applications for funding accepted March 1, 2019 – April 30, 2019.
