Our Charities

Although Masonic ritual varies between jurisdictions, a consistent message conveyed to every candidate is that charity is an essential part of Freemasonry. From this philosophy comes much of a 'Mason's work', given freely and willingly. Charity comes in many forms, both large and small.

No site could completely list all of the charitable work done by Freemasons. There are many which are local and private. In fact, much Masonic charity occurs in this quiet way. Other activities, are so broad that they cannot be hidden and we'll point you to some of them right here.

Caring Concern Activities
Some of our programs to help those who are suffering medical problems are well known. Others are not. Take a look and you'll be surprised at what we do.
Saving History Activities
It's natural that the oldest fraternity in the world would have an interest in preserving history. What's not as well known is how that interest is translated into helping everyone!
Helping Hands Activities
Whether it's scholarships or food for the needy, Masons are often found helping out. Here are some of the many, many examples of that.

mp2.jpg (11484 bytes)Some anti-Masons have criticized Freemasonry, arguing that based on the number of Freemasons in the world divided by the reports of some Masonic charities means that Masons are not as charitable as they hold themselves out to be. In reality, this attack belies facts.

First, much of the charity work which the anti-Masons examine is limited to less than a dozen activities. Most Masonic charity, however, is far less publicly visible than things like the Shriners Hospitals - and if Masonry itself doesn't attempt to total its giving, we fail to see how anti-Masons can.

Dr. S. Brent Morris has written a book which has brought light to much of the Charity work Masons are doing.
