The Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri, Inc. (SRF) was originally incorporated in 1946 as the Scottish Rite Endowment, Philanthropic, and Educational Foundation, Inc. Its purpose was to support the public charities of the Order and go beyond regular funds given by the Almoner to brethren in need.
In 1970, amended Articles of Incorporation were filed with the Missouri Secretary of State’s Office to change the name to the Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri. The SRF is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization chartered under the laws of the State of Missouri (EIN #43-6033388).
Today, the SRF concentrates on Four Principle Charities:
Providing financial support for the Missouri RiteCare Childhood Speech and Language Clinics and Programs, which provide therapy to children at no cost to their families.
Giving financial assistance to Youth Programs, specifically to offset their expenses related to leadership training and education.
Granting Undergraduate Scholarships to deserving individuals attending an accredited College or University and pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree.
Providing financial assistance for community disaster relief funds, as well as for brethren and families suffering under emergency conditions.
