Strategic Partnerships

We partner with charities and organisations who operate in Queensland and Papua New Guinea that tackle social issues to achieve life-changing outcomes for people in need.  Our focus is on ensuring Queensland’s most at-risk young people have the outcomes they need to thrive in adult life.

Member-led giving

At a local level, we work closely with Freemason Lodges throughout Queensland and in Papua New Guinea to identify areas of specific concern, 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.
