MSF's £1m Silver Jubilee Research Fund vote now closed

Thursday, 16 July 2015

Voting to determine which health and care charities will receive a share of the MSF's £1m Silver Jubilee Research Fund is now closed

Over 5,100 Freemasons made their voices count during June when they nominated one proposal, from an agreed shortlist of medical research studies, to receive a grant of up to £100k. Votes have been received from every Province across England and Wales, and from the Metropolitan Grand Lodge area.

The final allocation of funds will be confirmed by the MSF Trustees at their meeting in September, but early indications suggest significant support for research which aims to prevent, more accurately diagnose and treat cancers and degenerative diseases.

It remains the intention to invite senior members from across the Provinces, and from the Metropolitan Grand Lodge area, to present the awarded research grants to the winning charities. Full details of the recipient charities will be provided in September on the MSF's website and via the Fund's e-newsletter.

Thank you to all who participated and offered support to one of the shortlisted research projects. We value your opinion and appreciate your support.
