CHIP - CHILD IDENTIFICATION and PROTECTION PROGRAM

The Masonic Children's Foundation's CHIP provides the parents or guardians of a child with a small computer disc that provides:

  • Full-color digital photographs showing various poses of the child. These color photo­graphs can be circulated by the police to the media in the case of an abduction.
  • A complete set of digital fingerprints. Everyone's fingerprints are unique and are a well known tool for recovery, investigation & identification.
  • Information about the child including distinguishing features such as hair & eye color, scars, etc. The disc will also contain contact information on parents or guardians.

For more information please see the MOCHIP website at www.mochip.org

10/4/10

The 10/4/10 program is to provide an opportunity for brothers to contribute to the Grand Lodge Endowment Fund. 10/4/10 stands for $10.00 a year for ten years, which represents a total of $100.00 per member. The purpose of this program is to increase the Grand Lodge Endowment Fund so that in the future, interest may be used if needed as set fourth in the By-Laws. Each Brother who participates will receive a lapel pin and his name will be engraved in the 10/4/10 registry. For those who contribute $500.00 (Bronze), $1,000.00 (Silver), $1,500.00 (Gold), they will receive a Master Builder Statuette as a remembrance.

Endowed Membership

Click here for information on how to purchase an Endowed Membership for your lodge. For the older members it gives them a method to "Endow" their lodge. This would be a great retirement gift or a reward for many years of lodge service. The lodge could hold a fundraiser to purchase an Endowed Membership for that older member that means so much to the lodge. We should not forget those who have gone before us. An Endowed Membership may be purchased in honor of any member that is deceased. This would be a fitting tribute to a deceased member that gave so much of his time to your lodge and to you.
