Spreading the Joy of Cricket
The MCC Foundation is the charitable arm of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). The objectives of the Foundation are broad, with a focus on supporting and encouraging the playing of cricket in any part of the world, whether for education, leisure or social welfare.
The MCC Foundation came into being in 1993 as a result of a legacy left by the legendary cricketer Sir Gubby Allen, who captained England in eleven tests and who died at his home overlooking his beloved Lord's in 1989.
Within the UK, our primary aim is to ensure that children in state schools have access to professional cricket coaching. We have pursued this objective through the creation and expansion of our nationwide Cricket Hubs initiative.
Although MCC generously supports the Foundation by contributing to core operational costs and providing administrative support, we are ultimately reliant on donations to support our charitable work. Any help you can give would be most appreciated.
