Our Mission: The Indiana Masonic Home Foundation successfully raises, prudently invests, and faithfully distributed charitable funds to support causes that promote the principal Masonic tenets of brotherly love, relief and truth.
The Indiana Masonic Home Foundation was established in 1936 as an endowment fund solely to provide financial assistance to the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park. We have provided the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park with more than $79 million in support as of 2015. With your continued support, we will be able to care for those who are financially unable to care for themselves and provide quality facilities for all residents.
The Corinthian Society is a special society honoring those individuals who demonstrate wisdom and strength. The society recognizes individuals who have included the Indiana Masonic Home Foundation in their financial estate planning by leaving a legacy of hope for the future care of their fellow brother and sisters. Membership serves as a lasting testimony to lives well spent and a tribute to one of the principal tenets of Freemasonry– charity.
We are pleased to offer the opportunity for you and your loved ones to be a part of Walk Down Memory Lane Brick Campaign. When you purchase a Memory Lane brick, your name(s) will be inscribed on a bricks and prominently placed in the brick path near the fountain at the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park. Passers by will see and appreciate your donation for generations to come because all proceeds from your brick purchase will support the Indiana Masonic Home at Compass Park and improving the quality of life for all of our residents.
