Proud to support local charities
MFC Foundation was set up by Chairman Steve Gibson as the independent charitable arm of Middlesbrough FC. Though it uses the official Boro brand to engage with various members of the community, MFC Foundation exists as a separate entity from the football club.
Based at the Willie Maddren Centre in the East Stand of the Riverside Stadium, the charity began life in 1996 as Middlesbrough Football Club in the Community. It was relaunched as MFC Foundation in 2013, and in April 2015 received a Mayor’s Award in recognition of the service it provides to the local community.
Alongside Steve Gibson, Patrons of the charity include BBC presenter Steph McGovern and Sky Sports’ Jeff Stelling. Plus, former Mayor of Middlesbrough Ray Mallon has recently been recruited to the Board of Trustees as the Foundation continues to expand.
MFC Foundation operates within four key themes:
• Social Inclusion
• Sport Participation
Using these themes, MFC Foundation provides a whole host of programmes and initiatives designed to engage the most disadvantaged Teesside communities.
