Purpose

All the members of the Amaranth are aware of the "age-old" concept, that "That Charity is truest and noblest which treads in silence and secrecy all of its ways, not letting the left hand know what the right hand doeth." To this end, the Order founded the AMARANTH DIABETES FOUNDATION, INC. to raise funds for diabetes research. All money raised is passed directly to the American Diabetes Association for specific research projects. No overhead charges are applied by the AMARANTH DIABETES FOUNDATION, INC.

History

The Foundation was started by Past Supreme Royal Matron, Honored Lady Marie Waters, of Connecticut. It was her goal to give the Order a specific charity with which it could be associated and work for throughout the year. At the Supreme Assembly of 1979 the Supreme Council adopted the AMARANTH DIABETES FOUNDATION, INC. and established an irrevocable Trust Fund for the purpose of using one voluntary charity project. ALL Members of the Order are automatically members of this Foundation.

This action was discussed and finally taken after several years of legal research on the establishment of such a single voluntary charitable project. It being the belief that by so doing the Order would obtain greater recognition for its charitable efforts and donations. Each Subordinate Court and Grand Court was encouraged to continue to support, additionally, local and national organizations or charities of their choice.

The Order of the Amaranth is a fraternal organization composed of Master Masons, their female relatives, and majority members of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls and the Jobs Daughters International.

Accomplishments

In 1979 the Amaranth Diabetes Foundation, Inc. was established and in the 36 years since then the Foundation has donated over $15 million dollars to the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

The ADA presented the Supreme Council Order of the Amaranth the "Charles H. Best" Medal in 1996 for distinguished service in fight to find a cure for diabetes. Supreme Royal Matron, Honored Lady Sara Ann Seibert and Supreme Royal Patron, Sir Knight Richard D. "Ned" Kelly were honored to accept the award on the behalf of Supreme Council.

The ADA has recognized several Grand Courts for the stellar effort of their members in raising funds to find a cure for diabetes.
