Financial grants for individuals

Financial grants for individuals are only available to Freemasons (a member of the United Grand Lodge of England) who are experiencing hardship. Freemasons who are a presently subscribing member or who no longer belong to a Lodge, may apply. Widows and certain other immediate dependants of the above may also apply.
