Masonic Charitable Foundation

Introducing the new masonic charity, this is known as MCF or Masonic Charitable Foundation.

 

A grant-making charity providing help for Freemasons, for families, for everyone.

 

The Foundation brings together the work of four national Charities which had been operating separately under various names since the early 18th Century.

These charities are The Freemasons’Grand Charity, the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, the Masonic Samaritan Fund, and the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution..

During their time of operation, the four charities each provided a specific type of support to meet various charitable aims in support of Freemasons and their families.

Although much of the support provided took the form of financial grants, the charities also operated a number of institutions: the Royal Masonic School for Boys, the Royal Masonic School for Girls, the Royal Masonic Hospital and 17 residential care homes operated by the RMBI Care Company.
