The Foundation has announced a new initiative called ‘MAC – Masons Assisting Communities’. In partnership with the 179 Masonic Lodges located throughout Maine, the Foundation is expanding their community focused Matching Grants Program.
MAC is off to a strong start in early 2021 providing over $51,000 in donations to local nonprofits and towns where it was needed most.
In the most recent twelve months, under the existing Matching Grants program and working through the local Lodges, the Foundation issued 325 grants. This program in partnership with the Lodges provided over $350,000 to local community nonprofits, towns and organizations across Maine.
Maine Masons have always been committed to helping local community organizations accomplish their goals – whether that is an extra set of hands to employ their time and talents or a form of financial support. This matching grant initiative – MAC – Masons Assisting Communities, seeks to encourage and empower Maine Masons to do even more and bring awareness to their inspiring efforts.
About Our Unique Mission
The Masonic Charitable Foundation of the Grand Lodge of Maine was established in 1993. The Foundation aspires to provide support to the individuals, brethren, lodges, and communities where the tenets of Freemasonry seek to enrich the lives of those inside and outside the Craft. The Foundation relies on the combination of the generosity of its donors and the volunteerism of the Masons of Maine to carry out the work needed to bring these programs to life.
