It is one of the primary purposes of the Masonic Fraternity to provide charity for our fellow man, specially a fellow Mason.

Because of our commitment to charity and good deeds in our community, we give our time, our money, and our resources to help the community. 

One of the charities we are the most proud of is the Indiana Masonic home, where members, their widows and children can receive housing and support, regardless of their ability to pay.  With one of the best operational records in the state, and the ongoing support of Indiana Freemason lodges, the Indiana Masonic Home stands as the crown jewel of our fraternal charity.

As a lodge, one of the charities we support with our dollars and time is the Fort Wayne VA Hospital.  Our commitment to our soldiers and veterans is absolute.  We are willing to donate our time, our resources and our money to make the lives of our veterans just a little better.  We recognize that freedom is not free.
