The donations come from the William Alexander Kneel Endowment Fund, a charitable fund accumulated by legacies and donations from Devonshire Freemasons and their families.
Each year approximately £40,000 is distributed amongst local charities and organisations in Devon.
Caroline Creer, fundraising director for Devon Air Ambulance Trust, said: "We are very grateful to Devonshire Freemasons for this generous donation.
"We need to find in the region of £4.5 million every year to keep the helicopters flying and community fundraising is absolutely vital to the Trust. We value this support."
