Our vision and mission

Our vision reflects the long-term change that we want to see and actively contribute to achieving. The work of MCF focuses on supporting the Masonic community and wider society and our vision and mission for these areas is as follows:

Our Vision for Society

Everyone has the opportunity to lead positive, active and fulfilling lives, especially those that are in need, disadvantaged or marginalised

Our Vision for the Masonic Community

Masonic families are healthy, stable and secure thereby providing them with the opportunities to participate actively in their community and succeed in life.

Our Mission Statement

To be a force for good by providing support, care and services to Freemasons and their families in need, and supporting other charities to help the most disadvantaged in society.

Our strategy

There are three strategic goals which will help us achieve our Mission.

1.   We will enhance our support and services

We will extend the range of our support and services in response to the changing needs of our beneficiaries, and support charities to help those in need across England, Wales and internationally.

2.   We will improve our ways of working

We will measure the impact of our grant-making, services and support and evolve what we do accordingly. We will strengthen our relationship with UGLE and the Masonic community, and ensure we are in a position to support those in need for generations to come.

3.   We will raise our profile

We will become known throughout Freemasonry and reach out to wider society to be recognised as a leading charitable foundation in the UK

Our values

As we deliver our enhanced programme of support and services to the Masonic community and beyond, we need to pay attention to the manner in which we do so. Our values will provide guidance for how we carry out our activities ‘the MCF way’, and for how we behave and communicate with each other and the communities we support every day. Throughout the charity we adhere to the following values:

Responsive to need

We are a listening and inclusive organisation which identifies need and provides essential support to the communities with which we work.

Making a difference

We are compassionate and dedicated to changing people’s lives in ways that are shown to have a positive impact.

Striving for excellence

We work in a professional, collaborative and innovative way to provide the best service to our supporters, our beneficiaries and one another.
