The Grand Charity has committed an additional £3 million to be awarded in the form of 300 grants to local and regional charities across the Provinces and Metropolitan Grand Lodge in 2017.  Aptly called The MCF Community Awards, they are intended to raise the profile of the Foundation within the masonic, non-masonic and charity sector communities, whilst at the same time acknowledging and celebrating the 300th anniversary of the first Grand Lodge.
