Message from our Provincial Grand Charity Steward
Our newly installed Most Excellent Grand Superintendent, E. Comp. John M Phenix, in his address at Provincial Chapter, reaffirmed his commitment to the Provincial Charity Fund which, since its inception, has made much progress in supporting our small local charities & good causes.
As such, at the recent Trustees meeting, it was agreed to continue with the “Match Funding” initiative for the next Masonic year – (until 30th June 2020).
The “Match Funding”, of up to £100, can be used only to support monies you raise for local good causes and not any national charities that your Chapter may wish to support with its usual Alms collections.
When the Chapter wishes to take advantage of this “Match Funding” your Charity Steward, or whoever is responsible, should make a formal request to the Provincial Grand Charity Steward when submitting the donation and the Provincial Grand Chapter Gift Aid envelopes to the PGL Office in Bromsgrove.
Over half of our Chapters have, so far, used this incentive to focus their giving to those small local causes that rely solely on the generosity of their community. So please let us continue together to keep making a bit more of a difference.
