The Freemasons‘ Fund For Bermuda (FFFB) donated $2,500 donations each to five charities.

Recipients were Vision Bermuda, Windreach, The Continental Society, The Technology Leadership Forum and Beyond Rugby.

The Freemasons‘ Fund For Bermuda has been functioning most effectively since 1981 and has donated over $350,000 to charities in Bermuda.

Our purpose is to assist the Community of Bermuda by making donations which are generated solely from Freemasons. We do not make appeals to the general public or sections of the general public.

The Freemasons Fund For Bermuda is not a Masonic Lodge but represents masonic Lodges in Bermuda and is their local fundraising arm. Essentially every Freemason contributes and is a member.

Bermuda is quite unique in that on such a small island we have lodges representative of The Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and Scotland each with their own particular History in Bermuda. Each of the these lodges are members of the FFFB and contribute accordingly. Additionally the Fund itself will hold fund raising events.

100% of funds generated go to charities in Bermuda but donations are not made to Religious, Political or Masonic Bodies, Individual Freemasons or their families “ Freemasonry means different things to each of those who join. For some, it’s about making new friends and acquaintances. For others it’s about being able to help deserving causes – making a contribution to family and society. But for most, it is an enjoyable hobby.

Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations. It teaches self-knowledge through participation in a progression of ceremonies. Members are expected to be of high moral standing and are encouraged to speak openly about Freemasonry.

Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: its values are based on integrity, kindness, honesty and fairness. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches concern for people and care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.

Freemasonry is not a religion, nor is it a substitute for religion. The one essential qualification means that Freemasonry is open to men of many religions and it expects and encourages them to continue to follow their own faith. It is not permitted for Freemasons to discuss religion or politics at their meetings.
