MCC Foundation (Marylebone Cricket Club Foundation)

Founded in 1993, the MCC Foundation is the charitable arm of Marylebone Cricket Club and aims to transform lives through cricket.

Based at Lord's Cricket Ground in London, we are a cricket charity delivering projects across the UK and around the world. We provide free coaching and matchplay in order to empower all boys and girls to reach their full potential in the game, to unite and inspire communities, and to promote physical and mental well-being.

Overseas, we are working to provide life-changing opportunities through cricket and to open up access to the game. In 2021 we launched a transformative project to support young Syrian refugees in Lebanon by funding two cricket Hubs which provide skills, hope, and opportunity to children living in the Bekaa Valley and Shatila refugee camps.

Those two Hubs quickly became five, all of which are delivered by the Alsama Project, and provide six hours of coaching and match play every week year-round. The Hubs are a lifeline for the young refugees struggling to survive in the challenging environment of these camps after witnessing the unimaginable horrors of war.
