Who do we help?

Hand Heart Pocket makes a difference for local community organisations, local people and Queensland not-for-profit organisations.

Four areas of action

We empower, support and enable humanity through our four main areas of focus:

  1. We support initiatives to help people  living with debilitating and life-threatening conditions to lead a better quality of life.
  2. We support initiatives to make ageing more positive, fulfilling and dignified because a large part of our lives is spent being older.
  3. We provide a hand-up to people in exceptional need.
  4. Finally we respond to disastrous circumstances, helping mend lives and get people back on their feet.
Who qualifies for help?

We help the Queensland community in three ways:

  1. At a state level, we choose initiatives that align with our main areas of focus and that help improve the effectiveness of non-profit organisations with outstanding potential to make a difference. Although it is not possible to help everyone we would like to help but we believe we have chosen visionary partners with great integrity.
  2. Through cooperation with local, Masonic Lodges, we identify areas of specific concern and choose causes that have the potential to make important differences for their community that are in line with the causes Hand Heart Pocket can support.
  3. Through a benevolence assistance program, we help individuals in times of exceptional need. You do not have to be a Freemason to quality for benevolence assistance from Hand Heart Pocket. You can download our application criteria below:
