Charity: Building compassion

Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry. The organisation provides a support structure that helps members make positive contributions to communities and worthwhile causes through fundraising
events or volunteer work.


Individuals can make an important contribution at local, national and global level by giving both their time and money. Thanks to their efforts, Freemasonry is one of the largest charitable givers in the country, contributing over £48.1m to deserving causes in 2018 alone. Freemasons don’t only donate money, over 5 million hours of volunteer work was undertaken by Freemasons in 2018

“Freemasonry encourages me to think about what charity really means to me and why it is important. Giving to charity through my individual lodges and the Masonic Charitable Foundation also gives me confidence that my donations go straight to the charities in full.”
