Masonic Charitable Foundation – Small Grants for core expenses

The Masonic Charitable Foundation now offers small charities multi-year funding of £500 to £15,000 across 1 to 3 years, for running costs and other core funding expenses.

Areas of interest to the Foundation:

  • Early Years – for charities that support disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people up to the age of 25 years.
  • Later Life – for charities that support disadvantaged and vulnerable older people over 50 years.

The total amount of the grant requested must not exceed 15% of the total income of the charity. Applications are reviewed on a first come first serve basis; applications received towards the end of the application window may be deferred until a later funding round if the current one is over-subscribed.

To note: the Foundation also offers core grants to hospices, but this programme is currently closed (due to re-open in May 2019).

Registered charities (income less than £500k). Read more and apply here.

Next deadlines: 31 May & 27 September
