Basic Needs Assistance
- Masonic Relief is intended to help an individual or family when a serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action arises. With these events, little to no known community resources are available to meet the need or the urgency of the situation.
- Masons in good standing, Masonic widows/surviving spouses, Masonic family members, members of Appendant or Concordant Bodies, and community members may be eligible for limited financial assistance, depending on the circumstances of the situation.
- Please note that detailed financial information is required as part of the application process. Applicants should not expect to receive direct cash payment or other financial assistance; any funds provided are issued directly to the vendor on behalf of the client.
