The Western Fraternal Life Association Education and Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. It was formed to allow individuals to make tax-deductible donations to provide financial support toward the continued education of members and to support charitable purposes within the meaning of the I.R.C. 501(c)(3).
By making a donation, you will help members for years to come because only the interest earned from all the contributions will be used to fund scholarships. Higher education costs are continually increasing and many youth cannot afford to follow their dreams. As the scholarship fund grows, more scholarships will be available to members.
Contributions can be made in the form of cash, as the named beneficiary on a life insurance or annuity certificate or from the transfer of assets, i.e.…stocks, bonds, real estate or mutual funds. (Please consult your tax adviser for these types of transfers.)
You may make a donation in memory of a relative, to honor birthdays, or anniversaries. Lodges may make direct donations or hold fundraisers for the Foundation.
The regulations and application follows the same guidelines as the National Scholarship. Click here to see the guidelines.
For information about the Foundation and donations please contact Jack Minder at the Home Office. For information about scholarship applications and winners please contact the Fraternal Department.
