Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving recognized by charities around the world. It is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On November 26, 2018, you have the chance to join people around the world and support a cause close to your heart.
This year, the proceeds of #GivingTuesday will go to supporting the Shepherd Scholarship which is “an unrestricted scholarship to pursue advanced education offered by the Supreme Council, 33°” (scottishrite.org). In other words, the Supreme Council, 33° created this scholarship to be awarded to worthy and eligible scholars who are completing either a graduate or undergraduate degree with a concentration in a field that is focused on the service to or betterment of humanity. Eligible applicants must be United States citizens with a verified Masonic affiliation who are enrolled in an accredited university located in the United States, and have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. Those who wish to apply must do so online between January 15 and March 31. Awardees will receive $2,000 each year for up to four years in support of their tuition expenses. The number of Shepherd Scholarships that can be given out to deserving students is contingent upon the amount of donations we receive toward the scholarship’s fund. The more you give to the Shepherd Scholarship Fund, the more scholars we are able award with this financial gift toward their educational goals. The Supreme Council, 33° would like to dedicate all of this year’s #GivingTuesday proceeds toward the Shepherd Scholarship in the hopes that we can have more recipients this year than ever before. Contributions to the Scottish Rite Foundation, S.J., USA, Inc. are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
