Pillars of Charity
The Supreme Council established the Pillars of Charity Portrait Gallery to honor donors who are not necessarily Scottish Rite Masons, but who have made significant contributions to our charities. This gallery honors any individual who donates $1,000,000 or more to the House of the Temple Historic Preservation Foundation, Inc. or the Scottish Rite Foundation, S.J., U.S.A., Inc., with an oil portrait.
Donors who make a gift of $1,000,000 divided between one of our national foundations and a local Scottish Rite foundation will also qualify for this honor, as long as at least $500,000 of the gift is designated to either the House of the Temple Historic Preservation Foundation, Inc. or the Scottish Rite Foundation, S.J., U.S.A., Inc. A duplicate of the portrait is presented to the donor for their personal use. The donor’s name is inscribed in the beautiful Pillars of Charity Alcove inside the rotunda of the House of the Temple. Donor’s are also invited to a private luncheon or dinner with the Sovereign Grand Commander.
