Development Office

What We Do

The Development Office of the Supreme Council supports the financial needs of both the House of the Temple Historic Preservation Foundation, Inc., and the Scottish Rite Foundation, S.J., U.S.A., Inc., while also assisting Orients (states or geographic regions) and Valleys (chapters) with their philanthropic efforts.

We coordinate and execute fundraising initiatives such as Celebrating the Craft, the Adopt-a-Book program, Scottish Rite Friends Dinners, and annual mailings. Our staff also works to serve our donors and maintain the Supreme Council donor recognition program.
