      The Masonic Welfare Fund: Launched in 1997 it can assist a broad range of Masonic dependants who may not be eligible for assistance from existing Masonic Charities. It may also consider assistance for a wide variety of domestic and educational needs together with outreach projects.

      The Masonic Girls' Benefit Fund and Masonic Boys' Benefit Fund: Funded by income derived from investments following the sale of the Masonic Schools. Assistance is provided at all educational levels.
