Logo for the Truman Club through the Masonic Home of Missouri

“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.”

– Harry S. Truman, Grand Master’s Address, 1941.

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.

What is The Truman Club?

The 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. During Fiscal Year 2017, Truman Club members contributed more than $217,000 to assist individuals in need statewide.

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.

Truman Giving Societies

Once individual cumulative giving since January 1, 2004, reaches $1,000, you will become a member of the first Giving Society and receive the distinctive Harry S. Truman bust symbolizing the enduring legacy made possible by your giving.
