The Masonic Charities Fund is general in its name, but very special in the way it quietly provides help where it is needed, when it is needed. Not only does it epitomize the meaning of "Charity," it also exemplifies in deeds a principal characteristic of the Masonic Fraternity, the Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God.

The "Masonic Charities Fund" defines a helping hand effort quite different from the general parlance of "Masonic Charities" as it is used in a collective reference to all of our well-known philanthropies, such as the Masonic Homes and Children's Home, the Pennsylvania Youth Foundation, the Pennsylvania Masonic Foundation for Children, and the Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania.

Appropriate donations are distributed from the Masonic Charities Fund to those people, organizations, and places where there are special needs. Support is offered to worthy organizations which qualify as being charitable and need specific help in addressing vital concerns of caring for mankind. Relief assistance is given as emergency or temporary aid in times of tragedy or disaster. Loans and assistance are granted to further worthy educational efforts or to relieve critical economic needs.
