Join us! Your Lodge donation to the No Mason Left Behind Project helps older Texas Masons and their loved ones who may be facing desperate poverty or unsafe living conditions.

For more than 100 years, generous Masonic Lodges, other Masonic organizations, and individual Masons have helped provide older Texas Masons and their loved ones with a welcoming home, delicious meals, fun activities, and more more at Texas Masonic Retirement Center.

Your gift to the No Mason Left Behind Project helps provide care for Texas Masons and their qualified family members who may be facing desperate poverty or unsafe living conditions in their later years. We fight this tragedy together through the No Mason Left Behind Project.

As all generations live longer, you can expect the need for charitable care services to continue to rise. Your support helps provide all-inclusive 24 hours a day/7 days a week accommodations at Texas Masonic Retirement Center, including medical services and nursing care. The cost of these benefits exceeds $2.5 million annually.

With your $50 gift or more to the No Mason Left Behind Project, your Lodge name is added to our Honor Roll 2021 (donation year begins Sept. 1, 2020, and ends Aug. 31, 2021). Plus, you're eligible for wall plaques, desktop awards, certificates, and more honors based on your level of giving. A summary of Lodge or other Masonic organization recognition awards is included below.

Joe – Helped By Lodge Donations Like Yours

To help you understand the tremendous difference your Lodge makes by supporting the No Mason Left Behind Project at Texas Masonic Retirement Center, we share the stories of two of our residents, with names changed to protect their privacy:

jim-barnett-donate-pageIf help hadn’t come along at the time, there’s no telling where I would be. I didn’t want to be a street person, but I was headed that way. —Joe Barnett, Retired Printer - Family Provider, Steadfast Mason

At 92, Joe’s finances had been mismanaged by relatives. With his water shut off, little food in the house, and no telephone, he was in trouble. As a WWII veteran, steadfast Mason, and career printer, Joe had been a solid citizen all his life. He provided for his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

With support like yours, we helped him move into Texas Masonic Retirement Center.Joe gained thirty pounds in the first month of regular meals and loving care. Today, his twinkling eyes and broad smile say plenty about the life-altering generosity of Texas Masons and the safe haven offered by commitment like yours to the No Mason Left Behind Project at Texas Masonic Retirement Center.My house was broken into and ransacked. Thank God, I wasn’t home at the time, but I became afraid of living alone. —Lily Moore, Retired Nurse
