The Foundation was Originally founded in 1969 as the Scottish Masonic Homes of WA Society (Inc).
Over the course of many years, the organisation built 79 Independent living residences. These provided accommodation for both freemasons and non-freemasons
In the mid-2000s, the board decided to sell these homes and shift their focus to different kinds of charity work.
This has led to the many strong relationships we have built with different charity organisations over the last twenty years, many of which continue to this day.
Improving the quality of life of all Western Australians through a more highly visible community practice of the principles and values of Scottish Freemasonry.
About Scottish Freemasonry
Freemasonry is one of the world's oldest secular fraternal organisations concerned with moral and spiritual values. Membership is open to people 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 key principles;
Every Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and
Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care, not only for their own but also for the community as a whole.
This can be done through charitable giving and voluntary efforts.
Fulfilled through members helping to support and relieve the suffering of fellow freemasons, their widows and
orphans. These acts of kindness and support continue to this day and have extended to include the support of
individuals and organisations within the wider community.
