Charity is one of the cornerstones of Freemasonry, for that reason, the York Grand Lodge of Mexico F.&A.M. is involved in several charity programs which are managing by the Grand Lodge, or the Lodges of the jurisdiction.
For us, charity does not just mean writing a check or throwing coins in a basket. It means giving a part of oneself and one’s time — commodities that are always in short supply. By participating in improving the life of a whole community or a single human being, by example, they hope to encourage others to do the same.
These actions include scholarships, relief for natural disasters, and donations to schools and to low-income families. Especially notable are the many medical philanthropies supported by Masons, which range from neuromuscular, dental, and eye care to the world-famous Shriners Hospital program for children.
Recently, we have incorporated assistance for our brothers in need with transportation, medical and pharmaceutical relief in these pandemic times.
If you need our assistance or are interested in participating in one of these charities as a volunteer, donor or associate, please let us know.
