Funded entirely through the generosity of Freemasons and their families, the Masonic Charitable Foundation is one of the largest grant-making charities in the country. The Foundation brings together the work of four national Charities which had been operating separately under various names since the early 18th Century.
Most of the support provided by the Masonic Charitable Foundation takes the form of financial grants to individuals and families to assist with daily living costs. They can also award grants to provide specific items or services.

The target areas are reviewed regularly to ensure their grants are making the greatest possible impact.
