Formative years

The Masonic Charitable Foundation’s Chief Executive David Innes looks forward to the challenges ahead for the new charity

The creation of the new Masonic Charitable Foundation is a significant milestone in the evolution of benevolent support within and by the masonic community. I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to lead this new charity during its formative years.

The logo of the Foundation depicts a charitable heart at the centre of our masonic square and compasses symbol. It is my belief that the Foundation should become instantly recognisable as a force for good by all masons and their families, as well as by the charity sector and public at large. We will all be working hard to ensure this happens.

The transition from four charities to one has the sole purpose of improving the services provided to our many stakeholders. The transition will be challenging, but the staff and trustees share my determination to prevent any disruption to our services. The needs of our beneficiaries will remain paramount. 

I look forward to reporting on the Foundation as it evolves and welcome your support.
