Benevolent Programs of
The KNIGHTS TEMPLAR
EYE FOUNDATION was established at the Triennial Conclave in 1955. The objective
of the foundation is to provide hospitalization and surgery for the retention or
restoration of sight for those individuals who could not normally afford the expense
themselves or receive assistance from Medicare, State Aid, Social Services. There is
no restriction as to race, creed or color. Since its inception, over 23,500 individuals have received
the benefit of this great Christian philanthropy at a cost of over $9,000,000.
Additionally, thousands of others are benefitting from research grants of
over $1,000,000 which havebeen made by the foundation.Funds for supporting this work are
obtained in part from the annual $1.00 assessmentof each Knight Templar, contributions
from other Masonic and allied Masonic organizations and individuals, fund raising
activities, memorials, wills, bequests and other similar sources. Due to the
success of this program additional funds are required annually to support the approved
cases. Therefore, special voluntary campaigns have been
conducted through the Templar Commanderies in recentyears to secure the required
revenue.Additional programs have been instituted whereby a Templar may become a Life
Sponsor ($30.00), an Associate Patron ($50.00), or a Patron ($100.00) which relieves
hemself and his Commandery of the $1.00 annual assessment. Contributions are
solicited for Patrons and Associate Patrons from any individual or organization to support
this great work. Only a Templar may become a Life Sponsor. Many Commanderies
have 100 percent of their members as Life Sponsors.

Launched in 1922 with these words: "We feel that the Grand Encampment can build no greater monument nor inaugurate a more worth-while movement than to put into effect a plan which will provide educational advantages for the youth of our beloved Country, thereby enabling them to become more useful members of society and better citizens of this Republic."With this action, the Knights Templar became the first fraternal order to establish a program to assist needy young men and women to complete a higher education. Loans are normally made for the last two years of a four year program, and are repaid at low interest after graduation. Since the inception of this foundation, over $29,000,000 has been loaned to worthy individuals. As this is a loan program and does not make grants the funds revolve and the program is self-sustaining.
