Freemasonry teaches practising charity and care for the community by charitable giving and voluntary work.
Freemasons Public Charitable Foundation
Launched in 1989, the Foundation raises funds from the general public as well as freemasons. Income derived from the investment of these funds is distributed to public charities approved by the Commissioner of Taxation. Donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.
The Lodge was pleased to support the performance of a work by composer Ron Nagorcka for harpsichord, didgeridoo and Australian bush sounds, symbolising the reconciliation of two cultures.
Australian Chamber Choir
The Lodge is honoured to be a sponser of the recently formed Australian Chamber Choir as part of our commitment to support talented young Australians in the performing arts.
Fraternal organisations, including the Freemasons, attended and supported the arts. In 1723 The Theatre Royal in Drury Lane staged Love In A Forest with a dedication by the author, Charles Johnson, himself a Freemason, to the Worshipful Society of Freemasons. In 1728, the Grand Master, announced his intention to attend the Old Play House, hoping and expecting Brethren to accompany him. In August 1730 a Masonic play, The Generous Freemason was staged in London
