The MCF seeks to achieve media coverage for our grant-making by working in partnership with UGLE, Provincial Communication Officers and the charities’ communications teams to identify and publicise positive news stories.
Through a proactive media relations strategy we aim to keep our donors and the wider public aware of the beneficial impact that our funding provides to charities as well as the people and communities they support. Coverage of the grants we award on behalf of Metropolitan Grand Lodge and Provinces is also helping to transform the public’s understanding of Freemasonry as a force
for good in society.
Our growing media profile is helping other charities to find out about the MCF’s grant-making programmes and apply for funding, thereby increasing our ability to reach and help more people.
This year the MCF was mentioned in 240 newspaper articles including The Times, Evening Standard and Mail Online, reaching an estimated five million people.
