Masonic Education

Freemasons Foundation Victoria may approve, under the terms of its Trust Deed, assistance to Victorian Craft Lodges to support them in contributing to the education of children in local schools through means of a Masonic Education Support Grant.

As a general guide, the support can be awarded on the basis of academic achievement or financial need.
