The Scottish Rite
We are proud to be a philanthropy of the Austin Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. All of the Rite's charities center on the health, welfare and education of children. For more than 150 years, Texas Masons have joined with others around the world to institute and support charitable programs.

The Scottish Rite Dyslexia Center of Austin takes great pride in continuing this tradition of service by bringing quality education to those Austin area children who struggle to free themselves from the effects of dyslexia.
The Scottish Rite Children's Hospital in Dallas is the crown jewel of Texas Scottish Rite philanthropies. Originally a disabled children's home, the facility continues its role in orthopedic treatment and research, while meeting the challenge of other childhood and adult disabilities. Dyslexia and learning disability programs designed by the Scottish Rite Children's Hospital are in use throughout the nation.
