Compassionate. Commited. Capable.
In 2006, several long-standing charitable interests of Minnesota Masonry combined to create one umbrella organization, Minnesota Masonic Charities (MMC), with a mission to promote even greater levels of philanthropy.
MMC focuses on the most pressing issues and causes of our time, from supporting the educational pursuits of our youth to working toward eradicating cancer. We draw our compassion, fidelity and focus from the Masonic Fraternity – the world’s largest and oldest fraternal organization, and a group of men and women who practice strong values and a commitment to self-improvement through service.
