The Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri and The LIGHT Foundation join together in service to community

One of the Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri’s charity pillars is Disaster Relief. The core focus of the LIGHT Foundation is to create youth opportunities. The Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri in partnership with The LIGHT Foundation seek to support our community families that have been economically impacted through the COVID-19 crisis through job loss, school closures and unforeseen challenges with a resource-relief opportunity. We are compelled to support our families in need.

Together, we request that you, as leaders in our Scottish Rite Freemasonry and Scottish Rite Youth Programs, send a personal recommendation via email with the name, brief explanation and contact information (email and home mailing address) of a family in need. Recommendations need to be submitted by/before 5/15/20 to The need is great and our hope as a community is to respond swiftly.

Disaster Relief is a charity pillar of the Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri and we would humbly request if any in our community would wish to donate to the Resource Relief Fund, please contact the SRF Executive Director, Paul DeMerath ( or the LIGHT Foundation Executive Director, Sheri Mistretta (; 314.287.3633). Our calling is to serve those in need and the time is now.

As our valued leadership, you understand that relatives of our Scottish Rite Foundation of Missouri Board of Directors and LIGHT Foundation Board of Directors and staff are not be eligible for this fund.

Thank you for reviewing and recommending families for this resource-relief fund and supporting our community. Additional information regarding the Scottish Rite Foundation of Misssouri, Inc. can be found by clicking here.
