As you have heard at the Semiannual Communication of Grand Lodge, and through our Town Hall meetings, our 2014 charity fund drive fell well short of expectations. Your Grand Lodge is taking several steps to facilitate charitable giving on the part of our membership. With the advent of new technology, I am very pleased to announce that a new feature has been added to your New Hampshire Grand Lodge website allowing on-line charitable donations via PayPal. This easy-to-use tool provides a safe and secure means of donating to our designated charities via credit card. Your donations will be used to support the important missions of; DeMolay, Rainbow, and Grand Lodge Scholarships, the Matching Funds Program, the Medical Masonic Research Foundation, and the National Masonic Foundation for Children. While future charity fund drives will continue to be marketed using traditional postal mailings, this tool is introduced to supplement our means of collecting donations.
I encourage you to visit http://www.nhgrandlodge.org/ to experience the many wonderful enhancements that have been made to your Grand Lodge website, and to contribute to our charities as liberally as you can within the length of your cable-tow.
Cordially and Fraternally,
Stewart L. Aronson, Grand Master
John Gordon, Deputy Grand Master
