The Worthy Causes Committee meets two or three times a year at Mark Masons’ Hall to examine applications received from individual registered Charities looking for financial support or from Provinces and or Districts which may wish to support suitable registered Charities.

Major grants are made by this Committee to a wide range of qualified causes such as the R.N.L.I. AND Shelter Boxes for the Haitian earthquake. The Worthy Causes Committee contributes funds from the Mark Benevolent Fund. The Fund does not support research projects or disburse funds for staffing costs, amongst other restrictions and its scope is rigorously adhered to.

Charities or Provinces/Districts wishing to apply to the Worthy Causes Committee should do so by submitting a letter of application for assistance in the first instance to:

Charities, Mark Masons’ Hall, 86 St. James’s Street, London, SW1A 1PL and enclose as much background and supporting financial information as possible.
