ROYAL ARCH CHARITIES

 Royal Arch Masons in Saskatchewan support two principal charities:

1. Royal Arch Research Assistance (RARA).
This is a world-wide charity organised by General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch International and supported by many of the Grand Chapters of Royal Arch across the world. This charity provides financial support for research into the hearing problem that affects the learning abilities of young people known as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), in which research is still seriously underfunded. To learn more about RARA and its contribution to CAPD research, please click here.
In 2013, M.Ex.Comp. Edmund Harrison, Grand High Priest of General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons International introduced the "Gift for a Gift" program. For a contribution of $150 to RARA by an individual or a Chapter, General Grand Chapter will provide three CD's of music appropriate for Masonic ceremonial occasions. There are patriotic tunes as well as music for the opening, and closing of a Masonic body. There are incidental tunes and processionals to include hymns and other appropriate tunes.

2. Prostate Cancer Canada.
The Royal Arch Masons of Saskatchewan have adopted Prostate Cancer Canada as their second principal charity. The threat of prostate cancer for men, including Royal Arch Masons, is far greater than is commonly known. During his lifetime, 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with the disease, and this is expected to rise to 1 in 4 within a decade. The mission of Prostate Cancer Canada is to develop programs for public education, advocacy and support of those affected, as well as research into the prevention, detection, treatment and cure of prostate cancer.

 Individual Royal Arch Chapters may also support other charities within their own communities
