Lodge Number 9569 in the Register of the United Grand Lodge of England
Each year the newly installed master of Secklow Hundred Lodge choses his personal charities that the lodge will support. For this Masonic Year the charities that we will support will include:
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.
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. We can also award grants to provide specific items or services.
A range of health and care needs, including medical and dental treatments, counselling and mobility aids or home adaptations are supported, with funding also available for respite, residential, nursing and dementia care.
Our professional Advice and Support team offers confidential and practical guidance about the support available from the Masonic Charitable Foundation and many other organisations.
In addition to the support we provide to Freemasons and their families, the Masonic Charitable Foundation awards millions of pounds each year to local and national charities that help vulnerable people, advance medical research and provide opportunities for young people.
We also help to fund vital services such as hospices and air ambulances and regularly contribute to worldwide appeals for disaster relief. In total, our support helps to improve the lives of thousands of people every year in England, Wales and internationally.
In support of the grants and services provided by the Masonic Charitable Foundation, the Buckinghamshire 2021 Festival appeal will launch in October 2016.
The Foundation took over the work of the four central Masonic Charities in April 2016 and now provides a wide range of grants and services to Freemasons and their families who have a financial, health and care or family need. The Foundation also supports other charities.
The Province of Buckinghamshire is one of the first Masonic Provinces to launch a Festival appeal for the new Foundation.
