• Faith, Hope,
    Love & Charity

    It’s about brotherhood. It’s about fellowship. It’s about spreading light, sharing our gifts, giving to those who need a hand.

    It’s about Freemasonry.

    For almost a century, North Carolina Masons have gone about the business of endowing and growing two charities that protect children in trouble and senior citizens in need. OUR MISSION: To care for kids in need and aging seniors by financially supporting two homes, the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford, NC, and WhiteStone: A Masonic and Eastern Star Community in Greensboro.

    Through the work of the North Carolina Masonic Foundation, our 33,000 brothers in 370 lodges from Murphy to Manteo have extended the hand of indissoluble friendship to thousands who have found peace and safety through these homes..

    It’s about being a Mason.

    It’s about love.

    At its core Freemasonry is knowledge. Freemasons are taught to seek 'light' or knowledge throughout their lives in order to build a better world for themselves and all humanity. And, there is no greater calling than to aid those who themselves are in search of knowledge.

Welcome to the North Carolina Masonic Foundation

In 1929, a group of NC Freemasons had an idea. What if they created a foundation dedicated to funding the two Masonic charities in the state – for generations to come? It was an idea whose time had come. OUR MISSION: For more than 90 years, brothers with a gift for finance have grown and nurtured that original fund into a $80 million foundation that helps fund operations at the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford and WhiteStone: A Masonic and Eastern Star Community in Greensboro. NCMF also financially assists the Charles Edward Cathey Scholarship Fund, the Masonic Historic Preservation Fund, numerous lodge-sponsored scholarship funds and works to further the greater mission of fraternity to foster faith, hope, and charity across North Carolina.
