Charity & Service in our Province

The old saying 'Charity begins at home' is something very close to Staffordshire Freemasons hearts. Whilst we donate to large, national charities through Grand Lodge, we also support many local chairites within our Province which means that the people we meet, see and interact with in our communites are benefitting directly from our members giving and assistance.

The logo's below are from just some of the local, Staffordshire charities we have helped in recent times and we will continue to help when a need arises.

How the Foundation helps communities

The charities supported make a significant and lasting difference to people in need. We aim to benefit as many people as possible and further those causes about which Freemasons and their families have told us they are most passionate.
