The Truman Club

"The Masonic Home of Missouri, in my opinion, is reason enough for the existence of the Masonic Fraternity. Every man who is a member of our Fraternity in Missouri ought to be proud of the fact that he contributes to the welfare of his Brethren, and their children."

During Fiscal Year 2023, Truman Club members contributed more than $364,977 to assist individuals in need statewide.

What is The Truman Club?

MWB Harry S. Truman served as Grand Master of Masons in Missouri and as President of the United States. He was committed to the mission of the Masonic Home through his leadership and his financial support — the Truman Club honors that commitment.

Truman Club recognizes donors who support the Masonic Home with ongoing, annual giving. The support of Truman Club members is essential for the Masonic Home to help those in need. 

Membership Eligibility

To be eligible for membership, an individual must make an annual commitment of at least $100 in contributions during the calendar year. Membership is renewable each year on January 1.

The Truman Club recognizes both annual and cumulative giving to the Masonic Home. An indivi­dual’s cumulative giving since January 1, 2004 is calculated to determine eligibility for the Truman Giving Societies.


The Masonic Home wishes to thank our donors with additional benefits of membership for both their annual and cumulative donations. 

The Masonic Home hosts an annual Truman Club Dinner to recognize our members while raising funds to benefit the Masonic Home’s programs. This event is an excellent opportunity to honor those donors who have joined or moved up within The Truman Club by presenting their Truman Bust, Society membership pins and other donor gifts.

Members whose cumulative generosity reaches $2,500 or more are permanently recognized on The Truman Club Donor Wall located at the Masonic Complex in Columbia, Missouri.

All brothers, sisters, and friends of the Masonic Home are invited to join The Truman Club.
