Washington Masonic Charities invests in youth and education, provides comfort and support for seniors and those in need, and to preserve and share the Masonic heritage of Washington State. Washington Masonic Charities is the 501 c 3 incorporating and overseeing all of the charitable activities of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Washington Free and Accepted Masons.
One of my goals is to earn your support through our good work.
My hope is that every Mason in Washington will be as proud of Washington Masonic Charities as every Shriner is of Shrine Hospitals for Children. Over the course of this next year you will see in this newsletter and elsewhere the stories of the people we serve and the positive impact that this Fraternity is making in the lives of these individuals.
Washington Masonic Charities serves Masons in need - including our older Brethren their wives, widows, and those who may need us most, our community’s orphans (known today as unaccompanied homeless minors).
Our work is discreet, so you may not see or hear the hundreds of stories of those we help each year, but each Mason can and should be proud of the fact that the Fraternity brings Hope and support when it is needed most. We bring light to those we serve, every day.
