Masonic Benevolent Fund

The objects of the Masonic Benevolent Fund of South Wales (MBF) are the education and advancement in life of children of distressed or deceased Freemasons of the Masonic Province of South Wales and for the benefit of the widows of such Freemasons and in memory of the Right Worshipful Brother Lord Llangattock, a former Provincial Grand Master of this Province, to extend the benefits of such funds to old, infirm and distressed Freemasons of the said Province of South Wales, and also to subscribe annually to any or either of the recognised Masonic Charitable Institutions such sums as may be voted by the Annual Court of Governors.

In addition, the Annual Court of Governors may vote a sum, not exceeding one half of the investment income shown in the previous year's revenue account to be dispersed at the discretion of the Executive Committee to non-Masonic charities provided that such charities are registered as charities and either based within or operate within the Province of South Wales.

The MBF relies on brethren becoming Life Governors and on regular donations from Lodges in the Province to enable it to carry out its charitable work. Any brother interested in becoming a Life Governor should contact their Lodge's Home Charities Representative for further information.

If you are experiencing difficulty and would like to apply for a grant or just talk in confidence, in the first instance, please email
