Education is an essential component in the development and growth of an individual. It provides the individual with the intellectual and professional tools to be a positive influence and asset within their community as well as a mean to learn a skill in order provide for their families. This is one of the many reasons we as freemasons strongly believe and provide educational scholarships for our masonic family and state citizens to continue their education.
Masonic Grand Lodge Charities of Rhode Island, Inc. (MGLC of RI) supports a number of civic and social charitable organizations throughout our jurisdiction through several initiatives to support and inspire not only our masonic families, but also our local communities within our jurisdiction of the great state of Rhode Island.

The future of our fraternity and our ability to continue to grow our membership is highly dependent on being able to engage and integrate our new members into the activities of the lodge. When new members become involved and active in their respective lodges they become the best prospects for new candidates for that lodge. The Master Mason Rookie Award is an official means by which we can achieve the membership goals.
