Masonic Charities


The three Great Principles by which Freemasons stand are Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. Freemasons are taught to practise charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole – both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today. In addition, large sums are given to national and local charities.


  • Non-Masonic grants fall within five main areas:
  • Medical research
  • Care for vulnerable people of all ages
  • Opportunities for young people
  • Support for hospices
  • Disaster relief
