Making Good Men Better since 1890

Since our founding more than 128 years ago, by adhering to the tenets of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth; Gila Valley Lodge 9 has been a life changing experience for countless men. The impact Masonry has had on the individual lives of our members, the community, the state of Arizona, and the nation as a whole has been an immeasurable gift.


The continuation of the Masonic mission of “Making Good Men Better” relies on the preservation of the craft through contributions of our Brothers. Dues alone are often not enough. Generous individual donors like you make it possible for Gila Valley Lodge 9 to continue to change lives. Through your meaningful donation, you will be supporting the delivery of a lasting legacy that will further and empower the important Masonic mission for future generations of men and Brothers.

We offer many options for charitable giving, and we welcome all donations. We are thankful for one-time gifts that provide an important and ongoing source of funding for key programs and projects as well as recurring donations which make the expansion of our mission possible.

Additionally, many Legacy Donors have found that bequests are a way to perpetuate the values & ideals shared through Freemasonry which have been so important in their own lives. Including Gila Valley Lodge in your estate plans is an ideal way to express your benevolence and dedication to the values of the Fraternity, and a great way to ensure Masonry succeeds for future generations. 

Gila Valley Lodge 9 thanks you for your generosity and support. Together, we can change the world.
