300 charities, £3 million, 300 years of Freemasonry

Voting is now open in the MCF Community Awards. The Community Awards are offering the chance for local community charities to receive a share of £3 million generously donated by Freemasons and their families.

MCF Community Awards

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the United Grand Lodge of England, Freemasons have nominated 300 charities across England and Wales to receive a grant from the Foundation. Every charity that has been nominated has a chance of being awarded a grant of up to £25,000.

Depending on the size of each regional area; four, six or eight charities operating locally will have a chance to receive a grant between £4,000 and £25,000. Your vote will decide how much we give to each charity.

Vote for your favourite charity

The vote is open to all Freemasons, their family members and members of the public; everyone can get involved and vote for the charity of their choice.

You can only vote once, but you can share who you voted for with your family and friends to help your favourite charity get more votes.

Voting will take place from 12 June to 31 July

Voting will take place in June and July and the results will be announced in August 2017.
