Cornwall Masonic Grand Charity

The Cornwall Masonic Grand Charity

Registered Charity No. 206113 (Est. 1885)

The Cornwall Masonic Grand Charity (CMGC) supports the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF). This charity is primarily funded through the Festival system. Each year, four Masonic Provinces hold a festival to celebrate raising funds for the MCF. During the years leading up to the Festival, fund raising events and activities take place that make a significant contribution to the MCF.

The Province encourages the use of Standing Order mandates and the claiming of Gift Aid on eligible donations to maximise the money raised. Relevant forms can be downloaded from this website, obtained from Lodge Charity Stewards or the Charity Office Administrator.
