A Relief Chest is a simple, cost-effective scheme for managing charitable giving.

The Masonic Charitable Foundation provides charitable accounts known as ‘Relief Chests’ which offer a range of benefits for donors.

Any Lodge, Chapter or other recognised Masonic group can open a Relief Chest – all donations, payments and disbursements are then processed by staff at the Masonic Charitable Foundation.

Today, there are 4,645 Relief Chests holding funds which total £23.3 million.
