Community Service

Beyond their commitment to individual growth and leadership, Masons are deeply involved in their communities. Through all forms of charitable giving and community service, Masons feel it is their obligation to contribute to the care and well-being of their fellow man.

The Masonic fraternity contributes over $1 Billion each year to its philanthropic pursuits. Over $750 Million of that in the United States alone.

Maryland Masons continue this tradition by serving their communities with local scholarship programs, student assistance, volunteerism, educational support and other charitable activities.

Masonic Organizations worldwide sponsor a variety of children’s charities. Shrine Masons provide special medical services in their Children’s Hospitals, while the Tall Cedars contribute to Muscular Dystrophy research.
