Matched Giving

At a local level, we work closely with Freemason Lodges throughout Queensland and in Papua New Guinea to identify areas of need, and support causes that have the potential to make an important difference in their community. Freemason Lodges can apply to Hand Heart Pocket for Matched Giving on behalf of their local, nominated charity. Freemason Lodges can log into the member-only area to access all the information and forms they need to make an application
