"Hand Heart Pocket is making a difference where the action is – at a grassroots level in our local communities and with far-reaching initiatives that will beneﬁt all Queenslanders."
An independent charity founded by the Freemasons of Queensland, Hand Heart Pocket helps in areas of statewide and local need that have limited access to other funding. We work with other charities to identify and fund initiatives they can deliver that have real, life-changing potential.
We also collaborate with Masonic Lodges all across Queensland. Through their community work, local Lodges know exactly which hospital is in desperate need of specialist equipment, which children need help to live a normal life, or which volunteer group needs support to continue its work.
We also work with individuals in times of extreme need to get them back on their feet. We use our funds wisely to give a hand up - not a hand out - to build potential, not encourage permanent dependence.
100% of your tax-deductible donations go to organisations and people who genuinely need help. We always use our funds wisely to give a hand up not a hand out, to build potential not encourage permanent dependence.
One of the best ways you can help Hand Heart Pocket’s work in Queensland is by signing up as a hand heart pocket monthly hero. We think of our monthly givers as the real heroes of our organisation because they help make so much more possible...
Help more Queenslanders. Companies and individual philanthropists who want to make a difference are warmly invited to get in touch to discuss possible partnerships.
