For Freemasons, for families, for everyone

Charity has always been a core principle of Freemasonry. Individuals can make an important contribution at local, national and global level by giving both their time and money.

Freemasonry is one of the largest charitable givers in the country, contributing £42m to deserving causes in 2019 alone. Freemasons do not only donate money – more than 18.5 million hours of volunteer work was undertaken by Freemasons in 2018.



Masonic Charitable Foundation, the Freemasons Charity

The Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF), the Freemasons' Charity, builds better lives by enabling opportunity, advancing healthcare and education and promoting independence for Freemasons, their families and the wider community.

Funded entirely through the generosity of Freemasons and their families, the MCF is one of the largest grant-making charities in the country.

A wide range of help and support is available for Freemasons, their wives, partners, widows, children and grandchildren. Most of the support provided takes the form of financial grants to assist with financial, health or family related needs.

For further information about the help and support available from the Foundation, please call their dedicated freephone enquiry line: 0800 035 60 90 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The RMBI is part of the Masonic Charitable Foundation – a charity for Freemasons, for families, for everyone.

Caring has been our way of life since 1842 and we provide a home for more than 1,000 people across England and Wales in 18 care homes – while supporting many more.





The Freemasons Fund for Surgical Research is a UK Charity with the aim of supporting the Royal College of Surgeons of England. For many years, it has supported the College by funding Research Fellowships.

The fund was set up by donation raised as part of the 250th Anniversary celebrations of the United Grand Lodge of England in 1967 and received a second significant sum in 2014 from Supreme Grand Chapter to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Royal Arch.
