NIEMD Charitable Trust

North Island English Masonic District Charitable Trust

The NIEDMCT is the main instrument for funding English Masonic charity in the North Island. The Trust has supported charities such as the Heart Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis, the Christchurch Appeal, and many more. 

In addition, the Trust provides grants to members and their families if they are in financial difficulties. Funding for the Trust is provided by individual members making regular donations, often by way of a monthly Direct Debit Mandate and by Donations from Lodges. 

Members also sometimes leave a bequest in their will. 

If you are member of the Craft and do not have a Direct Debit in place, please feel free to download it below and then send the completed form to the District Grand Secretary or to your Lodge Charity Steward.

All of our Lodges have their own charitable organisations which support local and national charities as well as helping their own.

The Supreme Grand Chapter


Friday 09 September 2022

It was with the greatest sadness that the United Grand Lodge of England learned of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, our longest serving British Sovereign.

Queen Elizabeth’s father, His late Majesty King George VI and her consort, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, were both Freemasons.  Her cousin, HRH The Duke of Kent, has been Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England since 1967, and will be sending a message of condolence on behalf of all English Freemasons to His Majesty The King.  Another of her cousins, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, has been Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of England and Wales since 1982, and an announcement is being made from Mark Masons’ Hall.

God Save The King.
