Kansas Masonic Foundation    
The Kansas Masonic Foundation mission is to encourage philanthropy from Kansas Masons, their family and friends for charitable, educational and scientific programs as established by the Board of Directors. Contributions and gifts are actively solicited. Will bequests and other Planned Giving programs will be available and encouraged. 

Established in 1966 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization expressly organized for the purpose of expanding Masonic philanthropy in the fields of charitable, educational and scientific programs, the Foundation is totally funded by voluntary gifts and endowments from Kansas Masons, their families and friends. No portion of the dues of any Masonic body goes to the Foundation. 

Since 1974, the Kansas Masonic Foundation has been making annual grants to the Kansas Masonic Cancer Research Institute at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas. Initially, these grants were to assist in the care of cancer patients. The Foundation changed its direction, however, in 1992 to actively support cancer research. To date, Kansas Masons have donated over $20 million for both cancer research and care since 1974. To learn more about Kansas Masonic Foundation, please visit http://www.kmfonline.org
