The 1893 Society

Become a Member & Make a Difference

The Masonic Care Community opened its doors in May of 1893 as the Masonic Home. It was built with pride and purpose, initially meant to be a home for Masons and their wives, widows, and orphans. Over the years, the Masonic Care Community has been a safe haven and welcome place for tens of thousands of people.

The 1893 Society honors individuals and organizations that make an annual leadership gift of $500 or more to MCC. Members of the 1893 Society are essential partners in fulfilling our mission to bring exceptional care, comfort, and compassion to those who need it most. We are sincerely grateful to all of our 1893 Society donors who made leadership gifts this year and their constant support to the Masonic Care Community’s mission of caring for those in need.
