Information and Resources for Lodge Charity Stewards
The role of the Charity Steward is to champion all forms of charitable activity within the Lodge or Chapter but, primarily, it involves fundraising.
It should never be undertaken lightly, as it requires a personal commitment of time and effort.
Initiating and leading fundraising within the Lodge or Chapter not only brings financial benefits for Masonic and non-Masonic charitable causes alike, but also affords great personal satisfaction from many uplifting or humbling experiences and a great deal of fun along the way!
The Jewel worn by the Lodge Charity Stewards is a trowel.
Read how the life-changing work of Masonic charities has helped Freemasons, their families and other national charities in the UK and overseas.
