Cornwall Masonic Benevolent Fund

The Cornwall Masonic Benevolent Fund

Registered Charity No. 206107

The Cornwall Masonic Benevolent Fund (CMBF) was originally set up to provide grants and annuities to Cornish Freemasons and their dependents who are in need of financial assistance. Whilst this support is now primarily provided by Freemasons Grand Charity, the Province continues to offer an alternative and additional source of grants where appropriate. To this end the CMBF works closely with the Provincial Grand Almoner and the Provincial Assistant Grand Secretary who handle the petitions to Freemasons Grand Charity.

At the annual meeting of Trustees in January, a number of grants are made to non-Masonic charities working within Cornwall.

Any brother who wishes to nominate a charity for consideration by the Trustees should forward details to the Provincial Grand Charity Steward by the 30th November preceding the annual meeting.

The CMBF also supports the ‘Teddies for Loving Care’ scheme, providing teddies for young children in Cornish Hospitals, the Children’s Hospice and ‘Lifelites’ formerly part of the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys. Lifelites enables children and young people with life-limiting, life threatening and disabling conditions, to learn, communicate, and be creative through the provision of assistive and inclusive technologies. The CMBF supports Lifelites ongoing work at Little Harbour Children’s Hospice.

Donations from individual Brethren and Lodges in support of these activities should be made payable to the “Cornwall Masonic Benevolent Fund".
