Charity does not diminish wealth

ABOUT SCOTTISH FREEMASONRY

Freemasonry is one of the world's oldest secular fraternal organisations comprising a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Membership is open to men of good repute regardless of race or religion the only essential qualification is a belief in a Supreme Being.

 

For many years Freemasons have followed three great principles, which they believe represent a way of achieving higher standards in all walks of life:

 

  • Brotherly Love

Every Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow beings.

 

  • Relief

Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving, and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

 

  • Truth

Freemasons strive for truth, requiring high moral standards and aiming to achieve them in their own lives.

 

The great principle of relief was historically fulfilled through brethren helping to support and relieve the suffering of fellow Masons and their Widows and Orphans. These acts of kindness and support still continue today and have extended to include support of individuals and organisations within the wider community.

Our Philosophy

Improving the quality of life of all Western Australians through a more a highly visible community practice of the principles and values of Scottish Freemasonry.

Our History

The Foundation was established in 1969 as the Scottish Masonic Homes of WA Society (Inc). This Organisation built over many years 79 Independent Living Residences in Menora, providing accomodation for both Freemasons and non Freemasons. In the mid 2000's it was decided to sell these units and continue our Charity work in other fields. Thus leading to a relationship today with VisAbility (formerly Association For the Blind - Guide Dogs WA) and Surf Life Saving WA.
