This booklet provides a summary of the work of the Mark Benevolent Fund and the vital support it offers to members of the Order in times of distress.
Charity is at the heart of Freemasonry and within the Mark degree the members should be proud of the Benevolent Fund and the work that it carries out thanks to their generosity.
The Fund works closely with the Provinces, ensuring that grants reach our beneficiaries without undue delay. Our continuing support for Lodges, the members and in particular the Almoners is there to be an added source of strength at a time of need.
Charity is our foremost principle and the continuing support of Mark Masons is essential and necessary to enable the work of the Fund to endure.
Brethren, always remember the motto of our founder, Rev. George Raymond Portal – 'He who gives promptly, gives twice.'
Yours Sincerely and Fraternally,
R.W.Bro. R. J. Smith, P.Prov.G.M.
President of the M.B.F.
