Working Working in partnership

with Freemasonry

Festival grants

Provinces supporting us through an intensive five-year fundraising period known as a ‘Festival Appeal’, are now allocated additional funds to support local charities.

22 festival grants awarded totalling £122,348

Matched-funding grants

A Province making a donation can request for their donations (up to a total of £10,000 per year) to be matched-funded by the MCF, thereby doubling the total grant.

392 matched-funded grants awarded totalling £464,601

Regional Group grants

In our final tranche of support offered in response to the impact of COVID-19 on people’s mental health in local communities.

25 grants were made totalling £557,813

With the RMBI

In 2021/22, RMBI Care Co. was home to 874 residents, of whom 222 received additional financial support from the MCF. We increased our annual funding to RMBI Care Co. by 2.8 per cent, taking our support to £6.5m to help ensure the care and safety of all residents, staff and visitors.

With Teddies for Loving Care (TLC)

Locally-led by Freemasons, MCF provides central support and guidance to the Teddies for Loving Care (TLC) programmes.

After 21 successful years providing teddies as a source of comfort to children in A&E units, in 2022 we celebrated the total donation of 3M teddies which helped drive interest from national and local media such as BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and The Peterborough Telegraph.

The engagement on TLC’s social media was higher than usual with thousands of people reached through posts celebrating the donation of the teddies.
