The Masonic Charitable Foundation is a major new charity, that has just launched.
The Foundation will take over the work of the four central Masonic Charities, providing a wide range of grants to Freemasons and their families who have a financial, health and care or family need.
The Foundation will also award grants to other charities, medical research studies and disaster relief appeals.
Funded entirely through the generous donations of the Masonic community, the Foundation will have an annual charitable expenditure which places it amongst the largest charities in the country.
The Foundation will be financially strong, well-resourced and able to respond more effectively to the changing needs of Masonic families and other charitable organisations.

Last month saw The Foundation Club hold its annual Poker Night at Sutton Masonic Hall. This event attracted masons, non masons and even “Aces” a professional poker player from the TV show “Late Night Poker”. Thankfully “Aces” was a gentlemen and taught us a trick or two, without taking our money. There was fierce competition throughout the evening, but ultimately it come down to a show down between myself and Nick the chairman. Nick won! The top three decided to donate their winnings, minus a round, to charity, so with the raffle a whooping £595 was raised for Charity. £555 went to the 2019 Festival and £40 went to support TLC Teddies For Loving Care. Sam from the committee sat this one out, however he was working the floor and got a sign up for mark masonry and another for a past masters lodge. All in all it was a suburb evening enjoyed by all.
