Ui Heart Accent White@2x

What We Fund

Building stronger families and communities

Our philanthropic work predominantly supports the improvement of outcomes for youth at risk. We also back initiatives that help to improve men’s mental and physical health, women’s financial and physical security, and the quality of life for our ageing population.

Wwfi Flagship Grants@2x

Significant and Flagship Grants

At a state-wide level, we provide larger grants to charities, and organisations who trade to intentionally tackle social issues, to achieve life-changing outcomes. The grants mainly focus on helping to improve outcomes for youth at risk, but also support men’s mental and physical health, women’s financial and physical security and our ageing population. Organisations can apply directly to Hand Heart Pocket during one of our grant rounds.

Wwfi Grassroots Grants@2x

Grassroots Grants

At a grassroots 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 a grant 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.
