Charity is one of the fundamental principles of Freemasonry.

In Britain, Freemasonry is one of the largest contributors to charity. The bodies that English Freemasonry supports include The Royal College of Surgeons, Mental Handicap, Research into Ageing, Drug Abuse, Hospices, and other general charities both small and large. We put money aside to ensure we can assist Masons in distress, their widows and children. Also for emergency aid to places in the world hit by disaster.
