Donor Recognition

Every gift over $5.00 is recognized in writing.  For gifts of certain amounts, additional recognition is made.  Naming opportunities can be found here.

It is extremely important to all involved with the fundraising efforts of the Masonic Home, from the Grand Master of Masons in Virginia to the staff of the Development Office, that all donors receive appropriate recognition for their significant acts of generosity.

Every gift is important, but the level and method of recognition for gifts obviously varies with the amount of the gift.  Outlined below are the guidelines for Donor Recognition. 

The gift values quoted are based on the value at the date of receipt of the gift/bequest, or net present value for any life income or deferred gift.  Additionally, every donor receives a letter of appreciation, in accordance with IRS guidelines, acknowledging the amount of the gift.
