The Cornwall Masonic Charitable Foundation (CMCF) setup by the Freemasons of The Provincial Grand Lodge of Cornwall to help general charitable purposes that include, but are not limited to; education and training, the advancement of health or saving of lives, disability and the prevention or relief of poverty by supporting children, young people and the elderly.

Today the CMCF is pleased to announce it has been added to the list of charities in Amazon’s shopping experience, AmazonSmile.

What is AmazonSmile and how will it help the Province of Cornwall?

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support a charity of your choice every time you shop, at no cost to you, and is available at on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping App for iOS and Android phones.

Mike Pritchard, Provincial Grand Charity Steward of the Province of Cornwall had this to say:

“The Cornwall Masonic Charitable Foundation being added to AmazonSmile is fantastic news and can only help us to add to the grants we are able to make to Cornish Charities. This means that those who choose the CMCF as their chosen charity, when using AmazonSmile, are directly helping us to change the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves within Cornwall. I would like to thank everyone who decides to support The CMCF through this Amazon initiative”.
