Our Charity
Charities currently supported
by Masonry Universal Lodge No. 40.

The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness.
Freemasons are encouraged 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, substantial 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.
You will find below the charities currently supported by Masonry Universal Lodge No. 40.
Our funds derive from the generosity of our members, with alms collected at every meeting.
However, we can always seek to do more, so please do not hesitate to support our efforts by also donating. You may do so by contacting directly to the charity of your choice in the list below.
If you do not have a particular preference, you may also donate to our Charity Fund, and we will ensure that the sum is appropriately and faithfully applied.
