Freemasons Foundation is the trading name of the Northern Masonic Trust Board a charitable trust incorporated in 1957. Until 2005 we traded as the Roskill Masonic Village. The Village cared for the elderly and was the public face of Freemasonry since its formation in 1957. Just as the spirit of Masonic benevolence was at the heart of the Village throughout its existence, so it is now inherent in the Foundation. Today the caring continues as a “hands-off” indirect provider for all parts of our community.
For the last ten years, health has remained at the core of the Foundation’s interests. Medical research and community health receive our support in a variety of fields but our interests have now broadened across many areas of need as exampled by our programmes for youth in higher education, arts and culture and many other community activities.
The Freemasons Foundation is a new force in the Masonic tradition of caring. The Masonic principles remain as strong as ever – and we are proud of our contribution to society.
