Worcester Masonic Charity Organisation and the charities supported
The values of Freemasonry are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Freemasons are taught to practise 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.
From its earliest days, Freemasonry has been concerned with the care of orphans, the sick and the aged. This work continues today. In addition, large sums are given to national and local charities.
Masonic charity is exercised at every level: individual Lodges make gifts and give aid to their own communities and every Province also gives large sums of money to regional causes.
In Worcestershire our charitable work is carried out under the auspices of the Worcestershire Masonic Charity Organisation (W.M.C.O).
For Freemasons, for families, for everyone
The Masonic Charitable Foundation builds better lives by enabling opportunity, advancing healthcare and education and promoting independence for Freemasons, their families and the wider community.
Funded entirely through the generosity of Freemasons and their families, the Masonic Charitable Foundation is one of the largest grant-making charities in the country.
A wide range of help and support is available for Freemasons, their wives, partners, widows, children and grandchildren. Most of the support provided takes the form of financial grants to assist with financial, health or family related needs.

The object of the County Air Ambulance Charity is to use the income raised for any purpose relating to the National Health Service wholly or mainly for the services provided by the County Air Ambulance. The income to achieve this is, in the main, donations from numerous benefactors and many support groups locally who provide assistance. This work is co-ordinated by its Charity HQ.
Teddy Loving Care (TLC) provides for small Teddy bears to be given by Accident and Emergency Medical staff to distressed children in the A.& E. unit. Freemasons provide the Teddy bears to local hospitals and more than 350,000 Teddy bears have already been distributed in the UK.
