Mission Statement

Sharing History of Amos Proverbs and Ecclesiastes (the SHAPE Foundation) provides support for tenants of the Herndon Masonic Lodge and charitable activities that directly benefit the local community of Northern Virginia.

About This Cause

The SHAPE Foundation provides support for tenants of the Herndon Masonic Lodge in maintaining a venue to host community meetings for groups including the Order of DeMolay, the Order of Eastern Star, the Order of Job’s Daughters, Boys Scout of America, Girl Scouts of America, and others.  The Lodge hosts events that directly benefit the Northern Virginia community including quarterly blood drives for the American Red Cross, food drives to benefit the South Lakes PTA Food Pantry, and other activities such as clean-up and maintenance of a portion of the Washington and Old Dominion Trail authorized by the Northern Virginia Park Authority. The SHAPE Foundation pays tribute to the past by honoring the crew of the USS Herndon, the lead ship of the Allied armada on D-Day; celebrates the present by cultivating a spirit of community with neighbors helping neighbors; and looks to the future by providing scholarships to local high school students who have demonstrated their dedication to community service. 

The IRS recognizes The SHAPE Foundation as a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization; thus your gift may be tax-deductible.
