Who are the MCF?
The Freemasons Charity
The MCF, or the Masonic Charitable Foundation, is a charitable organisation based in the United Kingdom. It is the national charity of the Freemasons in England, Wales, and the Channel Islands, and it provides support and assistance to those in need, including Freemasons, their families, and the wider community.
The MCF was established in 2016 through the consolidation of four Masonic charities: The Freemasons' Grand Charity, the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, the Masonic Samaritan Fund, and the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution. By merging these charities, the MCF aims to streamline operations and provide more effective and efficient support to those in need.
The MCF's charitable activities include providing financial assistance for medical treatment, education, housing, and care for older Freemasons and their families. They also support local and national charities in the areas of health and wellbeing, education and employability, and social inclusion. The MCF is funded through donations from Freemasons, as well as investments and fundraising efforts.
The MCF operates with the values of generosity, integrity, and compassion, and seeks to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and communities in need.
