Welcome to Freemasons Charity
Yorkshire North and East Ridings CIO

Registered Charity No. 1170209

COVID 19 Emergency Grant

This is in the form of a matched grant to a maximum of £250 to assist in anything Covid related.

It is intended as a quick method of obtaining funds and requires minimal details, unlike normal non-masonic grant requests and should be turned around in about 72 hours.

Please note this is restricted to one claim per lodge or chapter.


The Charity has recently been formed to replace the Provincial Grand Charity of the Freemasons of Yorkshire North and East Ridings, which had existed for the last 30 years.

  • The new CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) will continue the work of the old Provincial Grand Charity, having similar aims and objectives.
  • The FCYNER CIO invites Freemasons’ Lodges in the Province of Yorkshire North and East Ridings to apply for grants for local charities.
    As well as registered charities, other local charitable causes may also receive support.
    Please note that local charities cannot apply directly to FCYNER CIO, but only through a local Masonic Lodge.

Masonic centres within the Province, the Lodges that meet there, and a Provincial contact point are all the website of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Yorkshire North and East Ridings www.pgl-york.org.uk
