The Masonic Angel Fund Masons Helping Children in our Community
Introducing the Masonic Angel Fund Provides modest assistance to children in need who do not fit the criteria of traditional social service programs Sponsored by local Masonic Lodges 100% of the funds raised in your community stay in your community Local Masons work exclusively with school staff to help children in need
How Does It Work? A school nurse, counselor or principal calls a local Masonic Angel Fund trustee when they identify a child in need. The Masons consider the request and respond to the school within a single business day – usually within as little as one hour!
MAF Builds Partnerships with Schools The school staff identifies and qualifies the needs of the child and then the Masons take it from there. No “paperwork” is required of the schools. All requests for Masonic Angel Fund assistance are anonymous – the Masons never know who the child is.
Why did the Masons start the Masonic Angel Fund? We love kids and value each one’s inherent right to reach his or her full potential. Such charitable work furthers our tenets of brotherly love, relief and truth We feel that such benevolent work brings the community together and will bring like-minded men together in our organization.
What Does It Mean to Be a Mason? You’ve just seen it! Masons strive to practice their tenets during every hour of every day of their lives. Whether it is through helping a child in need, offering video child identification programs or providing a scholarship to a promising graduate – Masons are for and about their community! Since 1733 American Freemasons have provided benevolent assistance to their neighbors.
