Masonic Charitable Foundation



A wide-range of help and support is available for Freemasons and their families with financial, health or family needs.


Our financial grants help Masonic families who are unable to afford everyday living costs and to actively participate in their community. 

Daily expenses

Our grants meet the cost of household bills, food and other everyday costs.  They also include a reasonable allowance for leisure activities.

“I know some people might feel funny about receiving financial help, but I don’t let it worry me – it’s been such a relief knowing I can keep paying for the things my family needs.”

Our grants help Masonic families get the treatment, care or support they need to live healthy and independent lives.


Our grants can help with the cost of private treatment or surgery when the NHS waiting list is over 12 weeks, or over 8 weeks for cardiac surgery or cancer treatment.  We can also offer grants to fund an initial consultation or assessment when the NHS waiting list is over 8 weeks.

“I was in agony and was shocked when I was told there was an 18 week waiting list for surgery.  Your grant for my treatment has given me back my life and I am very grateful.”

Our grants help Masonic families by providing opportunities for young people and a range of high-quality care provision.


Our grants can support the cost of IT equipment, course materials, school uniforms and extracurricular activities for children and young people.  We can also assist students in further or higher education with scholarships.

“When my husband died, I was worried about providing everything for my children.  The support I received means they haven’t missed out on anything at home or at school.”
