Spreading the Joy of Cricket
The MCC Foundation is the charitable arm of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). The objectives of the Charity are broad, and are to support and encourage 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.
In the UK, our aim is to ensure that children in state schools have access to professional cricket coaching.
Abroad, our objective is to encourage the playing of cricket in countries where there is huge interest in the game, but few facilities.
Although MCC generously supports the Foundation by covering our administration costs, we are reliant on donations to support our work. Any help you can give would be most appreciated.
