Our grants to charities are making a difference to thousands of people in communities across England and Wales.

Looking beyond Freemasonry

We look beyond Freemasonry, making significant financial grants to charities which improve the lives and wellbeing of people throughout the UK.

In the last four months alone the Masonic Charitable Foundation has donated over £1.5 million to 48 charities which are making a lasting difference in communities across England and Wales.

The charities we support help people experiencing poverty and disadvantage, sickness and disability or barriers to education and employment.

We are also among the first to support major relief appeals in response to natural disasters in the UK and overseas.
