About Us

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.


The CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) has been recently formed to enable Masonic Lodges to apply for a grant for a registered charity, not for charities to apply directly.

If you are part of a registered charity and hope for funding, please contact a Masonic establishment and put your case to them, they may be able to assist.
