The Keystone of Life Foundation is a charitable Society started by a group of Royal Arch Masons in 1973. The Foundation is incorporated under the Societies Act and is recognized by the Grand Chapter of BC and Yukon.
It’s objective is to purchase medical equipment for hospitals and similar institutions in BC & Yukon, particularly those hospitals in outlying areas which are not served by well funded foundations.
Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded grants in excess of $500,000 to qualifying hospitals around the jurisdiction.
Funds to carry out this objective are derived from membership fees, donations, bequests and legacies and fund raising projects.
Income Tax deductible receipts are issued for all individual memberships & donations made to the Foundation.
Individual annual membership fee is currently $30.00. A Life Membership fee is calculated based on age as specified in our pamphlets. Information is available from your Scribe E, Grand Chapter, the Keystone executive or you can download the attached pdf form, complete, and send with a cheque made out to “Keystone of Life Foundation” for the appropriate amount to the address on the foot of the form.
The Keystone of Life Foundation is now registered with “Canada Helps”, a national website that makes donations to charities by credit card much easier to complete.
