The Corinthian Society


The Corinthian Society recognizes individuals who have included the Indiana Masonic Home Foundation (IMHF) in their financial estate planning by leaving a legacy of hope for the future care of their fellow Brothers and Sisters. Membership serves as a lasting testimony to lives well spent and a tribute to one of the principal tenets of Freemasonry – Charity. The Society is named for the richest order in architecture, where the projecting parts of a building unite with Corinthian columns to form a beautiful, perfect, and complete work.
