“The more people you help to become successful, the more successful you will become”

 
Welcome to the Luther V. Garrison Sr. Masonic Foundation Inc. website.
 
 
Throughout the City of Yonkers and Westchester County, there are many young people living in poverty and single family households.  Despite the many obstacles in their lives, these young people managed to graduate from high school.  Sadly, few if any of these students receive scholarships of any kind.  Considering the increase in tuition, books, lab fees, supplies, etc, these students often fall short of the financial means to attend college, even with financial aid.  Many of them fail to have the confidence to enroll or they quit due to financial hardships.  Our scholarship program is designed to assist with these necessities and instill the confidence to stay in school.
 
For the past five (5) years, the Luther V. Garrison Sr. Masonic Foundation Inc. has committed to providing much needed services and assistance to our community.  As a 501-©-(3) non-profit charity organization with federal and state tax exempt status, we provide services such as Scholarships, Christmas Programs, Thanksgiving Programs, Easter Programs and Feeding the Less Fortunate all free of charge for the community.
 
One of the major services that we provide is our scholarship program.  As chairman of the scholarship committee, it is our duty to raise funds for these scholarships.  In the past, we have relied on contributions from the membership.  However, due to a decrease in member donations and a decrease in the amount donated, our ability to give scholarships has been drastically limited. 
 
In order to continue this great program, we must solicit donations from donors such as you.  Over the past five (5) years we have been able to award more than 25 scholarships to inner city students, in the amount of $1,000.00 each.  However, we received more than 150 applications during this period.  We must do better.  These students are enrolled in schools such as: Howard U, Hofstra U, Morgan ST, Herkermer Comm. Coll, Amherst, John Jay Coll, St. Johns U, Yale U, Westchester Comm. Coll. and many others.
 
Our goal for year 2014 is to award 15 scholarships.  We are asking you to sponsor 1 (one) scholarship in the amount of $1,000.00.  Any donation you make will be greatly appreciated and totally deductible.                                                                                                                                                      
 
Should you require further information, please contact me at 914-309-2466.  Your earliest reply will be greatly appreciated.  You can also make a donation through any page throughout this website by clicking on the “PAYPAL” thumbnail, located in the upper right hand corner of each page. Thank you in advance for your contribution.
