The Penny-A-Day (PAD) program began in 1974, when Lodges we asked to “pool their pennies” to help their brothers, sisters, widows and children in need. In 2016, Chapters began supporting the Masonic Home’s programs through the Penny-A-Day program as well.
“Masonry teaches us by symbols and, to me the Penny-A-Day is an important symbol constantly reminding us ‘in the most tender manner’ the importance of charity.”
Right Worshipful Brother Gary M. Hinderks
A Program of the Masonic Home of Missouri now including Dime-A-Day and Dollar-A-Day levels.
At the individual level, contributions will count toward Truman Club membership. Truman Club membership begins at $100 per year, and members are invited to the annual Truman Club dinner as well as regional events around the state. At the Lodge and Chapter level, all donations made as Penny-A-Day, Dime-A-Day, or Dollar-A-Day will be included in the Lodge or Chapter’s Vincil Society contribution as well.
With only $3.65, $36.50, or $365.00 per year per member, this program is just one of the ways Lodges and Chapters can support the efforts of the Masonic Home and build membership within The Vincil Society.
Now, individual members who contribute can also be recognized through The Truman Club. Annual Truman Club membership begins with $100 per year, and, as your gifts add up over the years, you can join the various Society levels.
Individuals – to receive individual credit for your Penny-A-Day contribution this year, submit directly to the Masonic Home via mail or online. Indicate “Penny-A-Day” in the comments.
Please consider supporting the Masonic Home through the Penny-A-Day Program at a new level, or anywhere in between. We appreciate and need your help.
