About Our Unique Mission

The Masonic Charitable Foundation of the Grand Lodge of Maine was established in 1993.  The Foundation seeks 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.  Explore our website and follow us on Facebook to learn more.
