The Matching Funds program was created to boost the impact of lodges in their own communities. There are two types of Matching Funds available: Promises Matter Matching Funds, and Community Matching Funds.

Promises Matter Matching Funds are used to assist Master Masons or their wives/widows/minor children. A lodge may use its entire annual Matching Funds budget ($12,500) for Promises Matter. If matching funds alone are not sufficient and additional Promises Matter assistance is required, the lodge may vote to apply for a Promises Matter Grant. Grants are not part of the Matching Funds application process and require a separate application which can be accessed here.

All other Matching Funds requests are classified as Community Matching Funds. A lodge may use up to $10,000 of its annual Matching Funds budget for Community Matching Funds causes.

Matching Funds requests must be submitted by the Lodge. Application forms may be found here: Matching Funds Application
