Apart from the Annual General Meeting of the club held on August 12, 2010, the Foundation met on five occasions throughout 2010/11. Its major roles included:

  • Sponsorship of AFL Victoria - Specifically the MCC Herald Sun Shield and MCC Herald Sun Cup.
  • Sporting Section Grants and Scholarships - Grants were provided to sections as in previous years for the support of coaches, upgrade of training and playing facilities, recruitment and improved performance.  Scholarships were awarded during the year in the amount of $5000 to three section members to pursue improvement in their field of sport.
