Charity and Caring

The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Freemasons are encouraged 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.

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.

Every Mason is encouraged to give generously within his means and without detriment to himself or his family, through Alms collections, gift aid etc.
