The Scottish Rite Learning Center of South Texas (a Texas Non-Profit
Corporation) is a charitable foundation created by the San Antonio
Scottish Rite Bodies of Freemasonry. It was created and dedicated
to assisting children with learning disabilities. These are children
who, despite normal to above normal intelligence cannot learn to
read or write without special training. The Learning Center wants
to help these children to become productive and worthwhile citizens.
The Learning Center is funded entirely by contributions
from Masons and non-Masons alike. It is a 100% tax exempt foundation
and donations to it are 100% tax deductible. The Foundation offers
an opportunity for gracious giving. A gift is a precious thing,
and through it, the giver can live forever in the hearts of others.
No charges are ever made for teaching the children who are in
the Take Flight program. The Learning Center operates with extremely
low overhead, with all administrative requirements and costs met
by the use of volunteers and through the Scottish Rite.
As contributions are made available
to the Learning Center, continued expansion of the new program
throughout South Texas will be pursued, and more and more children
can be helped. Inquiries and contributions are solicited. Phone (210)
