• 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.

Kid's design warms hearts .... and feet


What is the well-dressed Mason wearing this winter?

Socks. Stylin’ socks. Masonic socks. They’re comfy for the feet -- and good for the soul.

Sales of the socks is part of Grand Master Larry Thompson’s efforts to help raise awareness and some money in his year for our Masonic charities. Proceeds will benefit our Masonic Home for Children at Oxford.

The design – the Grand Lodge square and compasses -- was based on a drawing submitted by one of the kids for the 2022 MHCO calendar.

And keeping it in the Masonic family, the socks are being manufactured in North Carolina by Wrightsock, a company owned by Brother Jerry Wrightenberry and managed by Worshipful Brother Joe McCluskey.

The socks are spun of yarn made from recycled plastic. They are available in two sizes: Large (size 10-13) and X-Large (12-14) and in three colors: Bahnson Black, MHCO Yellow, and Code Blue. The price is $15 per pair plus $1.50 for shipping and handling. You can pick your order up at the Grand Lodge or have it shipped.

You can order via the QR code or grab your credit card and call the NC Grand Lodge at 919-787-2021 to order.
