To support Freemasonry’s charitable response to the coronavirus pandemic, Grand Lodge and the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) have established the Freemasons’ Covid-19 Community Fund. This fund will help to support a range of local and national charities and projects that are helping people through the current coronavirus pandemic. What’s more, the MCF will match all donations made to the Fund up to a total of £1 million!
In addition, the MCF has also allocated a further £1.75 million to help support local projects across the country identified by UGLE’s ten Regional Communication Groups. Projects supported include the provision of personal protective equipment to NHS and care workers; funding meals prepared at masonic halls for isolated and vulnerable people; and supporting the recruitment of volunteers for local Age UK branches.
To make it even easier for you to donate, the MCF has set up a phone number that you can simply text to make your donation. To give £5 just text COVID19 to 70500 and it will get added to your next phone bill.
