The Masonic Charities Fund was established in 1993 by the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. Contributions to the fund benefit various charitable organizations, both Masonic and non-Masonic.

Most recently, the Masonic Charities Fund has focused its support on the restoration and preservation of the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia. The Masonic Temple stands as a monument of the strength, stability and energy of the Craft in Pennsylvania. It is a significant priority to ensure that future generations may benefit from the past accomplishments of Freemasonry exemplified through and within the Masonic Temple.
