Freemasonry is described as the oldest and one of the largest fraternities in the world. It encourages good citizenship and political expression, and conducts charitable activities, but it is not a political or religious organization.
All on a private, confidential basis, Freemasons take responsibility for making things better in the world by helping people, contributing millions of dollars to make life a little easier for those in need, most who are not members.
Support ranges from helping a widow pay her electric bill and buying school lunches for disadvantaged children to children’s hospitals and burn institutes built by the Shriners. For more information >>click here>>
