Masonic Charitable Foundation – New Funds & Funding Events

Masonic Charitable FoundationAn Opportunity from Rolls-RoyceRolls Royce


Did you know that Rolls-Royce teams support community organisations, schools and charities with community projects?

Rolls-Royce has lots of teams looking for local community projects, either indoor or outdoor that can be

completed in one day. Teams range from 10 to 50 people and they can usually provide a donation that can help with materials and resources.

Any organisation they work with must have their own expertise and be able to manage the project, facilitate the team on the day and produce a risk assessment. Ideally the organisation would also be able to provide any tools the team members needed to use.

So if you have a current or future project that you’d like Rolls-Royce to consider then contact by the end of April.
