Many hands make light work
Projects originating in the Districts and lodges and undertaken in partnership with the Masonic Foundation play a major role in bringing Masonic charity to communities, where funds are raised locally to support projects of great significance to the residents of the community.
Every year, participating Ontario Districts select a charitable project. Many involve raising money for local hospital foundations. A number are youth-oriented, supporting children’s camps and organizations that provide services to children with health or developmental challenges. Districts can register their projects with the Masonic Foundation and receive a financial “top up” for their cause.
“District charity projects are important in making communities better places to live and work. The primary objective of these charitable activities is to meet and work together in the peace, harmony, and fraternal affection which characterize our great fraternity…for the cause of good.” – Douglas Nichols, President, Masonic Foundation of Ontario, 2011
