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 over £40m a year to deserving causes.
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.
Lodge Jamrud is active in its charitable activities including being a patron or grand patron to a number of leading Masonic charities.
