Sixty small charities and other not-for-profit organisations from across England and Wales will be able to access essential training and expert help from the Cranfield Trust, thanks to a new partnership with the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) which is funding the £228,000 project.

The two-year partnership will support essential social welfare services to the people who need them at this most challenging time.  Smaller charities who would not usually have the funds, will benefit from intensive consultancy or leadership development support in areas such as business planning, HR procedures, accountancy and other key requirements.

At least one charity or not-for-profit organisation nominated by every masonic Province across England and Wales will receive intensive support. The partnership will also include a programme of learning events and activities to thousands of other charities.

Drawing on Cranfield Trust’s model of skilled volunteering, charity leaders and managers will benefit from the support of highly skilled consultants and mentors. The partnership will also spearhead a major national study into the professional development and training needs of frontline charity managers, to build a management training programme for thousands more local charities in the future.

This important partnership with the Cranfield Trust will help 60 charities across England and Wales to become more effective and improve the delivery of services to people in need. It’s another demonstration of charity being at the heart of Freemasonry.

We’re delighted to be working with the Masonic Charitable Foundation to support vital, frontline charities across the country. This generous grant will enable the Cranfield Trust to link highly skilled volunteers with 60 frontline welfare charities and organisations to provide essential consultancy and mentoring services. The partnership will provide tailored professional support to meet the needs of smaller charities and as a result, local communities will benefit from even better charity services.
