Our charitable partner: Marcfirst
The charitable beneficiary for many years for the Royal Arch Masons Charitable Foundation (RAMCF) has been Marcfirst, a facility in Bloomington, Illinois. While Marcfirst does have a focus on autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their purpose is actually more encompassing:
Marcfirst provides a continuum of services and supports for families, children and adults throughout their lifetime including residential, vocational development, employment, and therapeutic supports for children. SPICE (Services for Parent, Infant and Child Education) Pediatric Therapies provides therapeutic services including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, counseling services and developmental therapy to children from birth to age fourteen who have a developmental disability or delay, or who are at risk of delay.
The RAMCF, with the assistance of the Grand Chapter’s Fundraising Committee, Royal Arch Chapters throughout the state of Illinois, and the generosity of individual Companions, provides for the financial relief of certain programs at Marcfirst, specifically those that center around childhood autism and the needs of families with children who suffer with autism.
Your donations — no matter what the type or method — go toward that charitable relief the RAMCF provides each year. You can do you part by making a donation, giving to our GoFundMe campaign, purchasing a Life Membership Raffle ticket, or making a donation in return for a small item of appreciation, such as a lapel pin or license plate frame. You can also attend one of our many fundraising events where various efforts will be held to help raise funds.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the RAMCF and Marcfirst.
