The Homes’ fraternal philosophy, and its driving charitable
spirit, has remained a constant – though programming has evolved.
In the early 2000s, the fraternity identified an emerging area of need
and created Masonic Outreach Services. In addition to caring for
Masonic Homes residents, members’ Annual Fund gifts now reach
communities statewide, supporting vulnerable Masonic families
and allowing senior Masons and widows to age safely at home.
Brothers have been supported through illness and job loss, tragedy
and tough times with grace, dignity, and the help of their fraternity.
Fraternity, family, and causes we hold dear
Throughout California’s history, Masonry has also repeatedly
stepped forward to support a vulnerable group outside the fraternity: public school students. Another Annual Fund program,
the California Masonic Foundation, champions every child’s
equal opportunity to learn and succeed.
