Freemasonry is the oldest, largest and most widely recognized fraternal organization in the world. Today, there are more than 2 million Freemasons in North America alone. Charity is an important tenet of the Masonic fraternity. The 90,000 Masons in Ohio provide approximately $15 million in charitable giving annually. Their efforts include college scholarships, support of the Special Olympics Ohio Summer Games, and free training enabling Ohio schoolteachers to recognize students at non-academic risk.
