Fulfilling Our Masonic Obligation

The Grand Almoner's Fund is central to the Scottish Rite’s commitment to care for our Brothers, providing assistance to Masons and their families facing unexpected hardships. The program focuses on our Masonic fraternity and assists:

  • All Freemasons, particularly Scottish Rite Masons within the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction;
  • Masonic families when a significant, unexpected burden is placed on them;
  • Immediate family members of a deceased Masonic Brother.

At the heart of our mission lies the belief that we, as a Fraternity, have an obligation to care for our members. The Grand Almoner's Fund is our keystone charity, providing direct and immediate assistance to members of our Masonic community in times of crisis.

“Without this help, who knows where we’d be? Thank you to the people who make this happen.”

- A Grateful Brother
