Celebrating 300 years
The Grand Charity

The Grand Charity

The Freemasons’ Grand Charity is a grant-making charity dedicated to supporting people in need. Each year the charity provides relief grants for hundreds of Freemasons and their dependants, as well as donating millions of pounds to national charities. The Charity is continuing a commitment to charitable support that began nearly 300 years ago in the earliest days of organised Freemasonry.

The Charity also operates the Relief Chest Scheme, helping the Craft to donate to charity easily and tax-effectively.
