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.
Today we are one of the largest charitable givers in the country, contributing more than £48 million to deserving causes in 2018 alone.

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.

THE FREEMASONS FUND FOR SURGICAL RESEARCH
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.
