Masons Helping Children

in our Community

The Masonic Angel Fund

Since its establishment in 1998, The Masonic Angel Fund has changed the lives of children and Masons throughout the United States.  From basic clothing to a pair of eyeglasses to specialized summer camp programs, the Masonic Angel Fund is there – with local Masons working to help local kids.

Since 1733 American Freemasons have provided benevolent assistance to their neighbors.  The Masonic Angel Fund is a natural evolution of that centuries-old commitment to Masons serving their fellow man.

 

How Does the Masonic Angel Fund Help?

The Masonic Angel Fund provides modest assistance to children in need who do not fit the criteria for the usual social service programs. 

Such assistance might be to provide a pair of eyeglasses, a coat, shoes, field trip fees, a portion of after school program tuition, music lessons, art instruction, summer camp.  MAF can fill virtually any need that will broaden a child’s educational experience or self-esteem.

How Does It Work?

Each Masonic Angel Fund is sponsored by a local Masonic Lodge. 

Working closely with the school staff in their community, the Masons learn of a child’s need through a nurse, counselor or administrator.   The Masons review the request and respond to the school within one business day. 

All requests for Masonic Angel Fund assistance are anonymous – the Masons never know who the child is.  No “paperwork” is required.  The school staff identifies and qualifies the needs of the child and then the Masons take it from there.

100% of the money raised in the name of the Masonic Angel Fund in your community stays in your community.  The local Masonic Lodge covers all expenses of the MAF from Lodge operating funds.

 

What Guides the MAF?

The highlights of our guiding principles are:

¨      100% of the money raised in a community must be used to help  children in that community

¨      School staff must screen all recipients – empowering them to do their jobs, without bureaucratic constraints, acting always in the child’s best interests

¨      Requests for Masonic Angel Fund benevolence must be addressed in one business day (most MAF’s respond in a couple of hours!)

¨      When MAF cannot fund an unusually large request, the local Masons use their professional and fraternal contacts to help the school staff find alternative funding sources

 

Why Do Masons Do This?

We love kids and value each one’s inherent right to reach his or her full potential.

Everyone involved with the Masonic Angel Fund derives great satisfaction from helping a family at a challenging time.

We believe that such charitable work furthers our tenets of brotherly love, relief and truth.

We feel that such benevolence 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 in 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!

Please note:
As you will see below many constituent Masonic Angel Funds have created their own brochures and flyers to use in local fund raising and Masonic awareness programs. This section of the website is a "showcase" for some of the better pieces that the Foundation staff has received.

The publications showcased here are for idea-sharing and stimulation of the creative process. Please do not adapt any of this material without the permission of the Masonic Angel Foundation staff.

Note: All literature prepared for a local Masonic Angel Fund should be submitted to the Foundation staff via prior to its publication. Why? Because we try to keep the message consistent throughout the "MAF universe". The Foundation is fortunate to have at its disposal three or four excellent marketing professionals as well as graphic design and web-authoring experts. Helping develop professional-looking literature is part of the service the Foundation provides for for constituent Masonic Angel Funds.
