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
