Cornwall Mark Benevolent Association
The Cornwall Mark Benevolent Association (CMBA) was established in 1945 and registered with the Charity Commission in 1962. The Association receives donations from Brethren of Mark and RAM Lodges in Cornwall, from the Lodges themselves and from other masonic and non-masonic organisations. It makes grants to Mark Master Masons and their dependants in the Province who are in need of pecuniary assistance and to other masonic charities.
The CMBA is controlled by Trustees who are: the Provincial Grand Master, the Deputy Provincial Grand Master, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, a Chairman, a Secretary/Treasurer and an Assistant Secretary, the latter three being elected annually at the Association AGM, which is usually held in March.
