One of the principal tenets of Freemasonry for centuries has been CHARITY:

To relieve the distressed is a duty incumbent on all men, but particularly on Freemasons, who are linked together by an indissoluble chain of sincere affection. To soothe the unhappy, to sympathize with their misfortunes, to compassionate their miseries, and to restore peace to their troubled minds, is the great aim we have in view. On this basis we form our friendships and establish our connections.

From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick, and the aged. American Freemasons raise more than $2.6 million each day to help people in need.
