# Supporting Minnesota Masonic Charities

Minnesota Masonic Charities (MMC), the largest donor in the history of the University of Minnesota, is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that depends on donor gifts to fund its many charitable endeavors. This generosity directly supports research, education, and care in the areas of cancer and children's health at the U of M. MMC's charitable activities also include scholarship support, matching grants, elder services, and the preservation of Masonic history.

MMC's total charitable grants awarded average nearly $5.6 million annually as part of yearly services totaling nearly$70 million. Its size, resources, and capabilities set it apart as a highly efficient and effective charity, and one of the largest grant-making organizations in the state.

The important work of Minnesota Masonic Charities can only happen through the generosity of donors.
