Masonic Charities

Who We Are

In 2004, the Grand Lodge of Minnesota created Minnesota Masonic Charities, a nonprofit umbrella organization that promotes even greater levels of charity through a united focus. The Minnesota Masons contribute to charitable causes of all types; aiding other Masons, their families and all people within society. Our size, resources and capabilities rank us as one of the largest grant-making organizations in the state.

Minnesota Masonic Charities offers a capable, central foundation for the Minnesota Masons' many charitable endeavors.  We are committed to strengthening the communities of Minnesota.

Our Charitable Activities

Minnesota Masonic Charities pledges compassion, commitment and capability as we serve our fraternal members, their families and others.

Minnesota Masonic Charities provides matching grants, principally in support of general public welfare in the widest sense, especially for the elderly and young people. Areas of support are broadly based and include social services, health care, medical research and education.

Getting Involved

Minnesota Masonic Charities encourages Minnesota Masons and friends to continue their contributions to our current activities, as well as seek out philanthropic opportunities we can explore together. If you would like to help by making a contribution of your money, your time or both, or if you have suggestions for other charitable activities that Minnesota Masonic Charities might consider, please let us know.
