Victoria Jubilee Masonic Benevolent Fund
Always Caring, Always Sharing
The Victoria Jubilee Masonic Benevolent Fund was established to offer Annuities to distressed Freemasons and widows of deceased Freemasons. Annuitants, of which there are several hundred, receive annuities annually and a seasonal Christmas bonus when possible. Residents of nursing homes may also qualify for a small grant. The Annuitants come from all parts of the Irish Constitution. Applications are considered quarterly at which time income, capital, health and residential criteria are taken into account when establishing the size of the Annuity from a graduated means tested scale.
The Grand Master is the Chairman of the Fund and he is supported by the Deputy Grand Master, the Assistant Grand Master and 20 board members (representing every province in Ireland) whose names are recommended annually by Provincial Grand Masters for approval by the Grand Lodge of Ireland.
