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.
