Durham Freemasons Charity

Service, being one of the four fundamental principles of Freemasonry is administered in our Province by the Durham Freemasons Charity, registered charity number 279313.

As a charity with assets over £8m we are very proud of our low administrative costs mainly due to the time and experience freely given by so many dedicated and enthusiastic Freemasons and by our highly professional staff in Provincial office.

The Provincial Charity Committee consists of an elected member from every Lodge in the Province who meet four times a year to agree the way forward for our wonderful Charity. 

Our two residential housing properties at Fulwell, Sunderland and Bishop Auckland are flagships of our organisation and something we take great pride in. These homes enable people to live their lives privately and independently in a safe, secure, and sociable environment.

We are also involved with many Community Engagement initiatives, Providing Community Defibrillators, taking part in and helping to organise Park Runs, working alongside our TLC Teddies and providing Community Support Grants to some extremely worthy causes in the very heart of our communities.

Durham Freemasons Charity is for everyone, to support, engage and make a difference to lives across our Province.To contact us please email benevolence@durhamfreemasons.org or should you wish to make a personal donation please click here.
