In order to provide a permanent funding source, many millions of dollars will be needed. Our campaign goal is $5,000,000 divided into two phases of $2,500,000 each resulting in an initial corpus of $5,000,000 from which The Masonry Foundation can access the interest to fund critical industry initiatives.

$3,736,500

Goal: $5,000,000

"I thrive on promoting my industry and its future. I know what it can provide and I want to be a part of preserving its future."

Investments

The Foundation was established to provide perpetual financial support for the nonprofit and its mission. It is the goal of the Board to maintain and invest the Fund so that the growth of the Fund will be sufficient to offset the effects of inflation and to provide perpetual funding at prescribed annual levels for the operating fund of the nonprofit.

"It's important for we, who have benefitted so much from this industry, to give something back, helping to ensure a sound and prosperous future for the next generation."

- Michael Sutter, Sutter Masonry, Inc.
