About Us

Masonic Toys for Tots was founded in 1975 by Freemasons who saw a need to provide joy to children who were hospitalized with severe blood disorders at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Masonic Toys For Tots has grown into a charitable foundation that hosts several major events each year. We are not only dedicated to providing toys for children, but also to raise funds to foster research, education, and treatment at New York Presbyterian, Weill-Cornell Medical College and The Children’s & Cancer Blood Foundation, for children suffering from these debilitating diseases.

For many years, the Masonic Toys for Tots Foundation Inc. has contributed thousands of dollars annually to CCBF in support of the life-saving blood transfusion needs of so many sick children. The Masonic Toys for Tots Foundation Inc. teams up with Santa Claus every year to deliver toys, musical performances, clown acts and balloon tricks to pediatric patients at NYP/Weill Cornell Medicine's Komansky Center.

Masonic Toys For Tots Foundation Inc is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable corporation based in New York City.
