The Grand Lodge of Ohio Charitable Foundation was formed by Grand Master Thomas D. Zahler in 1994 in order to support one of the most valued tenets of Freemasonry: Relief. This fund is designed to help Masons help Masons. Whether it be sickness, storms or even the passing of a brother, The Masonic Relief Fund makes it possible for Ohio Masons to not only be there in spirit, but to help shoulder some of the burden financially.
Asking for Help:
All requests for Masonic Relief begin at the local lodge. If the lodge cannot take care of the need on its own, it may request help from the Foundation through the District Deputy Grand Master. Generally, a decision can be made in a matter of hours. Lodges should direct any questions directly to their District Deputy Grand Master.
