The preferred method of contributing to the Somerset 2020 Festival Appeal is by lump sums or regular monthly donations made into your Lodge relief chest.

You can set up a regular Direct Debit to your Lodge Relief on the MCF website. Simply enter your Lodge number preceded by an L on the MCF Lodge Relief Chest Form >>

You can also make a one-off donation to your Lodge relief chest by phone or by post. You can read more information about making a single donation on the MCF website >>

Online donations will be attributed to your individual honorific level. For further information about honorifics, please see the Honorifics page >>

Click the donate button to set up your Lodge Direct Debit today.


Make a single payment or set up a direct debit by completing and returning the donation form:

You can return forms by post to: Masonic Charitable Foundation, 60 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5AZ.


Make a single payment or set up a direct debit over the telephone by calling the MCF Relief Chest team on 020 3146 3333.

The team will ask you a series of short questions and it should take no longer than five minutes to set up your regular pledge or make a one-off payment.

Text Message

You can text a one-off donation of £5 to the Somerset 2020 Festival Appeal by simply texting: CHARITY2020 to 70500.

You will receive a reply by text message thanking you for your donation and asking you to click a link so we can credit the donation to your individual and Lodge honorifics.

Gift Aid

Making a donation with Gift Aid means the MCF can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give in the form of tax relief.

To enable the MCF to claim Gift Aid, you must complete the Gift Aid declaration when donating online or when using one of the paper donation forms. Completing the declaration on a Gift Aid envelope means the MCF can also claim Gift Aid on cash donations.

Gift Aid doesn’t cost you anything or affect any aspect of your finances or tax status. The MCF manages all the administration directly with HMRC. You must be a UK taxpayer to be eligible to apply Gift Aid to your donation.

If you require any additional information or would like a supply of Gift Aid envelopes, please contact the MCF’s Relief Chest team on 020 3146 3333 or speak with your Lodge Charity Steward.
