"To preserve the reputation of the Fraternity unsullied must be your constant care."


“The Masonic system represents a stupendous and beautiful fabric, founded on universal purity, to rule and direct our passions, to have faith and love in God, and charity toward man.”

MSA Ends South Carolina Hurricane Appeal

The Masonic Service Association of North America has announced that the Hurricane Disaster Appeal for South Carolina that began on September 18th, 2018 has successfully concluded. Any funds earmarked for SOUTH Carolina arriving after today will now be forwarded to Florida's appeal.

Executive Secretary Simon LaPlace issued the following message earlier today:
The Grand Lodge of South Carolina has received a tremendous response from their Brethren and from Lodges from other Jurisdictions in light of the damages caused by Hurricane Florence.
Their Masonic Charities and Disaster Relief Board has determined that the requests they have received for assistance due to flooding can be met by the generous donations they have received from MSA and the additional donations from their Brethren.
Consequently, they have asked the Masonic Service Association to conclude our Disaster Relief Appeal and forward any future donations to the Grand Lodge of Florida on their behalf.
Thank you for supporting this Disaster Relief Appeal for South Carolina.

Please remember that MSA Disaster Appeals currently remain in place for Florida, North Carolina and Guatemala. Please see the MSA website HERE for current appeals and for donation information.
