Since launching in April 2016, the MCF continues to provide a wide range of support for Freemasons, their families and the wider community to encourage opportunity, promote independence and improve wellbeing. The consolidation has meant more efficient processes have been established, ensuring that more of your money goes directly to recipients and that it does so in a timely manner.
The MCF has given significant funding, both nationally and in Warwickshire, to Brethren and their families, and to excellent charities we all love and like to support. Commencing in January 2018, the Festival is running for a period of 5 years. I have no doubt that the Brethren of the Province, supported by their friends and families will rise to the challenge.
At the Festival's culmination in 2023, I am sure that we will be able to announce that we have again achieved a magnificent total and will be able to celebrate in true Warwickshire fashion. My aim for the next 5 years is to ensure that everyone gets involved. Whilst we will use many tried and trusted means of raising funds, let us also find new ways and new events to ensure that all our Brethren, their families and friends participate, contribute and have fun.
In closing, I would like to ask you all to get behind this Festival as Brethren, as Lodges and as Masonic meeting places. Until 2023, let us make the MCF our ‘charity of choice’.

How to support the 2023 Festival
We encourage all Brethren to reach a personal target of £600 over our Festival Appeal. We acknowledge that this may not be achievable for everyone, and would like to thank you in advance for any funds raised in support of the MCF.

Freemasons can become a Steward of the 2023 Festival by donating a minimum of £500 towards the Festival Appeal. This can also be paid in monthly instalments of just £8.30 over the five years. This equates to just 27p per day or £1.91 per week.

Use Gift Aid envelopes
The Masonic Charitable Foundation has supplied dedicated Gift Aid envelopes for our Festival. These can be obtained from the Provincial Office and are also located at each Masonic Hall. Use these envelopes wherever possible and, assuming they are completed properly, eligible donations will increase by 25% for those paying sufficient income tax. Using these envelopes will allow your donations to go directly to the Festival and be credited to both individuals and Lodges.
