The McAlester Scottish Rite

Charitable & Educational Foundation


The Foundation is the principal philanthropic entity of the Scottish Rite. It is a Scottish Rite project, operating under the supervision of McAlester Consistory members. Its funds provides the support of two extremely important programs: Education and Childhood Language Disorders (RiteCare Clinic).


The emphasis of the educational program is on scholarships for deserving high school graduates who need financial assistance to attend college. In working with Childhood Language Disorders a program is in place to train public school teachers in the area of dyslexia. Communication Disorders are the most common problem for children, affecting more than all other disorders combined. The Scottish Rite is the leading private benefactor for Childhood Language Disorders in the United States.


The Foundation's funds to support the programs depend solely on contributions from Consistory members and friends. As a Scottish Rite Mason, you can take great pride in the work of the Foundation and the difference it is making in thousands of lives.
