Our contribution to the WA community in 2018-19!
Masonic Foundation is a registered charity established by the Freemasons of Western Australia. The purpose of the Foundation is to assist in ensuring that people’s basic needs are met and to ensure them at least a modest standard of living. The Foundation’s charter defines these needs as food, clothing, lodgings and medical treatment. Only those people who are in circumstances of significant need are eligible to receive benefit from the Foundation. The Foundation aligns closely with the key values of Freemasonry “Integrity, Goodwill and Charity” as well as Freemasons desire to care for the community.
How Masonic Foundation supports the community
Masonic Foundation supports individuals in need, community groups and charitable organisations including the Fiona Wood Foundation, the West Australian Young Achiever Awards, UN Youth Australia, Mens Shed WA, 16th Battalion Foundation, Variety WA, Camp Quality to name a few as well as operating the annual Masonic Education Grants and Speak Up competitions.
Masonic Charity Outlets
Masonic Charity Outlet (MCO) is an initiative of Masonic Foundation and they’re not your typical Op-Shop! With a focus on quality recycled and donated furniture, homewares and fashion displayed in a contemporary shopping environment, our stores aim to provide an enjoyable shopping experience at a fraction of the price.
Proceeds from sales at MCO’s go directly to the Foundation to allow us to grow our support for Western Australian Communities, Charities and Individuals. MCO’s are always on the lookout for volunteer shop staff, collectors, sorters and donations. More info is available on the MCO website.
