In support of the grants and services provided by the Masonic Charitable Foundation, the Berkshire 2023 Festival appeal will launch soon.

The Foundation took over the work of the four central Masonic Charities in April 2016 and now provides a wide range of grants and services to Freemasons and their families who have a financial, health and care or family need. The Foundation also supports other charities.

The Province of Berkshire is one of the first Masonic Provinces to launch a Festival appeal for the new Foundation.
