New Relief Chest Scheme guide

We have created a brand new Relief Chest Scheme Guide to help make the process of opening and managing a Relief Chest as easy as possible.

Read our new guide and discover how opening a Relief Chest will help you to save time, take control of your donations and give more to the charities you support.

Setting up a Relief Chest is easy and only takes a few simple steps

Pass a resolution

Your lodge needs to approve the opening of a Relief Chest by passing a resolution. The resolution should be carried out in accordance with the usual practice of the lodge, chapter or masonic group.

Appoint a Relief Chest representative

The representative will act as the main point of contact and administrator for the Relief Chest.

Complete an application form

The Relief Chest representative should complete the application form and return it to the Relief Chest Scheme. The form must be countersigned by the secretary of the lodge.

Please send your completed application form to
