The Masonic Charitable Foundation brings together the work of four national Masonic Charities – The Freemasons’ Grand Charity, the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, the Masonic Samaritan Fund and the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution – providing a wide range of grants to Freemasons and their families who have a financial, health and care or family need.
The Foundation also looks beyond Freemasonry, making significant financial grants to charities which help people to live happy, fulfilling lives and to participate actively in society.
The Foundation provides Community Support Grants to registered charities in England and Wales that help and support people experiencing poverty and disadvantage, sickness and disability or barriers to education and employment.
Small Grant applications are considered at meetings held in January, April, July and October. The next deadlines for application are 23 February 2018 and 25 May 2018.
Large Grant enquiry forms are considered three times a year. The next deadline is 4 May 2018.
