families and is continuing a commitment to charitable support that began

The Freemasons’ Grand Charity
From its earliest days Freemasonry
has been concerned with the care of
orphans, the sick and the aged.
This work continues today. Masonic charity is
exercised at every level. Individual lodges make gifts
and give aid to their own communities and every
Province also gives large sums of money to regional
causes. Nationally, our efforts are channelled through
four main charity organisations with non-Masonic
charities in the wider community benefiting to the tune
of approximately £7 million last year.
Freemasons are one of the
largest charitable givers after
the National Lottery, and also
make major contributions to
international disaster relief
Many local charities including the Air
Ambulance, Acorns and the Worcester
Cathedral stonemasons, benefit from the
generousity of Freemasons.
Freemasonry places considerable
emphasis on charitable giving, including
the part that many Freemasons play in
their local communities, and a focus on the
central role of the family. Stressing a moral
and ethical approach to life – including
thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the
community, honesty in business, courtesy
in society and fairness in all things.
