Masonicare is the official charity of NSW and ACT Freemasons. Quite simply, our aim is to improve the lives and wellbeing of people in our community.
The act of ‘charity’ is a foundation principle of Freemasonry,and Masonicare provides all Freemasons the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to this principle by providing financial and other support to a range of charity and philanthropic initiatives.
Over the years, through generous fundraising and assistance, Masonicare has proudly supported a number of programs, including medical research, aid for sick or disadvantaged children and youth, community health and the elderly.
Helping those around us through charity is the very essence of Masonic belief, and Masonicare is the primary way for individuals to demonstrate Freemasons in action!
The jurisdiction is divided into 4 Regions, over 60 Districts and in excess of 300 individual Lodges. The Grand Charity, Masonicare, has a representative at each of these levels whose role it is to promote Masonicare, initiate and facilitate Grant applications and be aware of any needs for Benevolence.
In each Region we have a Masonicare Regional Manager (MRM).
In each District we have a Masonicare District Representative (MDR) and each Lodge we have a Masonicare Caring Officer (MCO).
