New RMTGB web site
In July 2006, the Royal Masonic Trust for
Girls and Boys launched its new website.
It can be found at www.rmtgb.org.
The new site, which incorporates the
Trustís new logo, is easy to use and contains
a wealth of information about the support
available and about the most effective ways
of giving to the charity.
Various forms and information sheets are
available to download from the site, together
with the latest and previous editions of the
Annual Review. You will also find useful
information about forthcoming Festivals,
detailed records of fund-raising achievements
and have access to an interesting photograph
archive of the former Institutions.
The Trust is the largest educational
grant-making trust in the United Kingdom
and, above all, the site shows the enormous
breadth of the work undertaken by the
Trust and its subsidiary charities, including
maintenance grants to poorer Masonic
children, university scholarships, travel
grants, student accommodation, bursaries
for cathedral choristers and support for
the gifted children of Masonic families.
Please take time to visit the site and
see the regular updates on how the Trust
is fulfilling its mission.
