Give Now

You can help preserve history with a gift to the Masonic Library and Museum. With your support, our more than 30,000 artifacts will continue to educate and inspire scholars, historians, Masons, artists, students and others who walk through our doors. Your gift, of any amount, will help us continue to serve as a National Historic Landmark.

Make a Planned Gift

Leave your legacy while ensuring the Masonic Library and Museum’s mission can continue. There are various planned giving options for you to choose from:

  • Charitable gift annuities

  • An IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

  • A distribution from a donor-advised fund

  • Giving through your Will, trust, or by naming the Masonic Library and Museum as the beneficiary of your IRA, retirement plan, annuity or life insurance (easily print out our bequest language, and share it with your advisor to include the masonic temple, library and museum in your estate plan)
