Sharing the Charity’s work
Skill Force, a charity delivering educational
programmes achieving outstanding
reductions in the truancy rate amongst
vulnerable 14–16 year-olds, is just one of the
organisations featured in The Freemasons’
Grand Charity Review of 2006.
The booklet, enclosed with this edition
of MQ, highlights a selection of ways
in which the Charity has spent over
£4.6 million during 2006, supporting
people in need.
The Review is supported by three leaflets
focusing on specific areas of the Charity’s
work (Masonic grants, non-Masonic grants
and Hospice Grants) and explains more
about the activities of the organisation,
funded by the generous donations of
Freemasons and their families.
During 2006, The Freemasons’ Grand
Charity provided financial support in 1,775
cases where a Freemason or his dependant
was experiencing hardship. Several hundred
national charities also received funding
towards their general costs or specific
projects, including over 200 hospice services
and charities supporting vulnerable people,
youth opportunities and medical research.
In addition to explaining the work
of the Charity, The Review marks the
introduction of a new logo for the Charity.
Incorporating the working name of the
organisation, the new design featuring an
engraved ashlar, highlights how the values
and beliefs of Freemasons are at the very
heart of the work of the Charity.
The new logo is set to feature on all
of the Charity’s internal and external
communications, including an updated
website and it is hoped it will make a
significant contribution to highlighting
the support given to the wider community
Copies of the Annual Review and
leaflets are available free of charge for
distribution at meetings or events. Please

on 020 7395 9261 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All publications are also available
