Every year Freemasons help thousands of people in need.
How? By donating millions of pounds to charitable causes.
Freemasonry is a tremendous force for good in society and our communities. While it is not a charity, Freemasonry is charitable, supporting its own members and their families in distressed circumstances as well as non-Masonic charities and individuals. Freemasons are rightly proud of the fact that they raise all money for their charities from their own members and their social activities and not from the general public.
Charitable efforts tend to be concentrated at three levels: locally, province-wide and country-wide.
To ensure that our charity response remains as important to our Brethren and local communities, as it is to the many thousands of families that are helped every year, three charities operate under the banner of the Masonic Province of East Kent.
The Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) offers a wide range of support at a national level.
