The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Freemasons are taught to practice 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.
The Freemasons' Grand Charity

"The Freemasons' Grand Charity is dedicated to helping people in need, and has donated over £100 million since 1980."

Each year, The Freemasons' Grand Charity provides relief grants for hundreds of individuals who are experiencing financial difficulty, as well as donating millions of pounds to nationwide charitable projects and services.

Charity begins at home !

Connaught Court fete, June 2016. The Master of Calcaria Lodge, Derick Godfrey, presents a cheque for £300, raised by him and the brethren of his Lodge, to David Leach Chair of the Friends of Connaught Court, the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institute home in York. Should an elderly Mason or one of his dependents become resident in an RMBI home, they will never have to leave and can rest assured they will be looked after for the rest of their days.
