Welcome to the NEW RAMCF web site!
The mission of the Royal Arch Masons Charitable Foundation (RAMCF) is to bring awareness of – and encourage funding for the relief or aid of – causes and needs deemed worthy by our current Most Excellence Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of the State of Illinois. In 2016/2017, Companion James Tome has determined that the condition of autism will once again be the cause the RAMCF is to provide relief to for local, Illinois families suffering from the ravages of this unfortunate and incurable affliction. All financial donations collected by the RAMCF will be donated to MarcFirst located in Normal, Illinois. Your gift may be tax deductible (the RAMCF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so check with your tax advisor).
The Grand Royal Arch Chapter’s Fundraising Committee and RAMCF are continuing the “Autism. Part of the puzzle is still missing. You.” campaign to bring awareness of – and solutions to – our Foundation’s main concern, childhood autism. Remember, our fraternity’s three principal moral virtues are faith, hope and charity, with the greatest of these being charity. Be a part of the solution, Companion.
