The Cryptic Rite Charitable Foundation Inc. was established in 1984 by the Grand Council of Royal and Select Masters of Ontario. In 2012, the Supreme Grand Council, Eastern Jurisdiction Royal & Select Masters and the Cryptic Rite Masons of Western Canada have joined in its work, thus making the Foundation truly Canada wide.
The Royal and Select Masters are an organization of Masons dedicated to gaining more knowledge about Freemasonry and to providing assistance to persons afflicted with any form of neurodegenerative diseases. The Foundation seeks Capital Donations and uses all of the investment income and non-capital donations to fund research to find a cure for neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Unlike many charitable organizations and Foundations, The Cryptic Rite Charitable Foundation is operated completely by volunteers and has NO ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSE in its operations. Therefore 100% of the gifts we receive are used for the purposes designated. If a Donation is made in memory of a person, a beautiful card is sent to the Family.
All donations to the Foundation are tax deductible and receipts are forwarded immediately after being received. Our Income Tax Registration Number is BN 11922 9177 RR0001.
