Charity in the Province of Surrey

The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Freemasons are taught to practise charity and to care for the community as a whole through charitable giving, voluntary efforts and work as individuals

 

What is Masonic charity

One of the cornerstones of our Fraternity is charitable giving and support within the local community to both Masonic and public charities.

Donations are also made to National and International charities where relief or much needed funds for aid is needed.

It is not just about money but caring and supporting those in need of help and assistance.

How do Freemasons give to charity

Every Freemason is encouraged to give within his means and without detriment to his family.

Charity is raised in many ways either through donations at each meeting or even a fun event where the family can also get involved.

Individual lodges donate to local good causes, to projects within their communities and to National causes.

Lodges also donate to the Surrey for Surrey Fund where donations are accumulated that a larger donation is made to charity organisations in Surrey.

The Province of Surrey also supports National charities and sends much needed funds where a disaster has occurred or a piece of equipment is needed in a hospital.
