IMH Board Vision To Become the Retirement Community of Choice for Indiana Freemasons Noble goal, and one we at IMHF share, but... – Oldest apartments are 100 years old, and newest apartments are over 30 years old; – Newest part of the Medical Center is 33 years old, and oldest part (where our memory care patients live) is 57 years old; – We do not have the amenities that today's retirees, including Freemasons, want.
Indiana Masonic Home Foundation Helping to preserve our Indiana Masonic Home for 76 years by providing funds for the Home’s fraternal mission and projects that benefit the entire campus.
Mission The Indiana Masonic Home Foundation successfully raises, prudently invests, and faithfully distributes charitable funds to support causes that promote the principal Masonic tenets of brotherly love, relief and truth.
The Results Since 1980, the IMHF has remitted $65.5 million to the operating fund of the Masonic Home and $71.5 million overall. The need continues because more than 40% of the residents are on fraternal care, and the campus needs improvements.
We walk by Faith IMHF recently announced gift of up to $12 million to: – Construct a community center on the ground formerly occupied by Bretzlaff Hall and the Scottish Rite Memorial Building. – Make associated improvements. Grand Master broke ground May 18, 2014; cornerstone will be dedicated September 7, 2014; completion is expected Spring 2015.

We must act on Faith If we are not annual donors, become donors. If we are donors, consider increasing our $100 donations to $365 (only a dollar a day), our $250 donations to $500, our $500 donations to $1,000, and our $1,000 donation to $2,000 or even more.
We must act on Faith When the time comes… – that we will no longer need our assets, and – after we have provided for the welfare of our families, keep the Indiana Masonic Home Foundation in mind. The future of the Indiana Masonic Home will be assured. Many of us, including our friends and loved ones, may depend upon this care during the declining years.
