The Masonic Charitable Foundation’s Large and Small Grant programmes are currently under review as the organisation examines ways in which it can better target funding to make the greatest possible impact. The new programmes will be open for new applications on Tuesday, 21st August 2018.
The Foundation supports Registered charities in England and Wales through the Community Support Grants Scheme which has previously given support for projects that:
- Tackle financial hardship
- Improve the lives of those affected by poor physical and/or mental health and wellbeing
- Provide educational and employment opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people
- Tackle social exclusion and disadvantage.
To date, Charities have been able to apply for large grants of £5,000 and above or for small grants of between £500 – £5,000.
More information on the new grant giving strategy will be available when the programmes go live on Tuesday, 21st August 2018.
