All Pennsylvania Masons are eligible for membership in the Masonic Blood and Organ Donor Club. A donation of one unit of blood provides coverage for the immediate family. Please donate as often as you can — blood supply is a precious gift of life that only you can give.
This program is open to all Pennsylvania Freemasons. Also open to Members of Pennsylvania Women’s groups having Masonic affiliation as a requirement for membership. Requirement of one donated unit of blood by the applicant or by a substitute. There is no monetary obligation for membership. Widows of all Pennsylvania Freemasons are automatically covered, upon application, without the required one unit of blood.
Members are registered under the name of the eligible member, regardless of who makes the actual blood donation. Wives and minor children are covered under that name, unless the wife registers under her membership in an affiliated women’s group. There is no need to give a membership number when you donate blood. You can tell them you are donating for the Masonic Blood Donor Club. Some blood centers keep a record and others do not. It doesn’t affect you either way. Your membership will be renewed automatically, and we trust that you or a substitute donor will give blood when you are physically able. Membership cards generally are produced once a year, in mid-March. You don’t need to show your card to anyone — it is enough to be on the Club roster.
If you know of a Masonic Widow who is not a member of this Club, please print out the membership form below and encourage her to join, without the requirement of providing one unit of blood. It is a benefit of her husband’s membership in the Masonic Fraternity.
Please contact the Junior Warden, the Blood Drive Chairman for Lodge No. 43, with any questions.
