Washington Masonic Charities is the 501 c 3 public charitable arm of the Freemasons of Washington. We have three areas of service – children and youth, older adults, and preservation of Masonic heritage.
Freemasonry, in its current form, is more than 300 years old. Charitable activity is one of the Masonic core values. Masons in Washington are reminded that “every human has a claim on our kind offices.”
Washington Masonic Charities’ mission is to create a culture of philanthropy to invest in youth and education, provide comfort and support for seniors and those in need, and to preserve and share the Masonic heritage of Washington.
Our vision is to build an environment where people live with meaning and dignity, and can learn, grow and be safe. Our Masonic heritage and values are the cornerstone to fulfill this vision.
