Together we make a profound difference

Part of Something Bigger Than Ourselves

Good men come to Masonry for many reasons. For many of us, one of the most important is to be part of something bigger than ourselves. When we come together with our brothers, we are able to make an impact on the world that is truly lasting. This impact begins when we stand together as brothers in the lodge. It magnifies when we commit to and champion our Masonic values of brotherly love, relief, and truth.

The three principal tenets of Freemasonry are the foundation of our Annual Fund.

It is because of brotherly love that our lifelong friendships endure; a love that promises to each Mason that he and his family will never be alone. It is through relief that we show this brotherly love, lifting up a brother in his hour of need. And it is truth that echoes through the act of providing relief we are proving to our brothers that the obligation we took to protect them is more than mere words. These same values inspire us to reach out to our communities, ensuring that we are giving future generations the ability to help our civil society endure through critically needed literacy programs.

Please help this legacy of relief continue by making a gift at the Anniversary Level of $167 or above.

The future of our fraternity now 300 years young is only just beginning. Imagine the impact we can make in our lifetimes. Imagine our sense of pride in knowing that vulnerable children and fraternal families throughout California can count on us. There is no end to the good works we can fulfill over the coming months and years but to achieve these goals, we must stand together now.

Each gift to the Annual Fund deeply affects the lives of our brothers, their families, and vulnerable children throughout California, igniting positive changes that endure for generations. Last year, more than 3,200 brothers, and their wives and widows turned to us for support. Thanks to generous gifts from brothers like you, they were told: "We see you, brother. You can count on us."
