The MRC Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Melbourne Racing Club, and provides a centralised, coordinated approach to our charitable giving and community support.

The Foundation assists a diverse range of groups and organisations, particularly those within the areas of our three racecourses, Pegasus Leisure Group venues across Victoria and participants in the racing industry.

The MRC Foundation hopes to engage not only its MRC members and Pegasus Rewards customers but the wider Victorian community via generating charitable funds and other in kind support in order to enrich the life's of people in need.



The MRC Foundation supports local charities and organisations across our 12 participating Pegasus Leisure Group (PLG) venues around Victoria. Our PLG donation program gives two charities or local organisations per venue the chance to receive $1,000 at the end of a three month period.

Any customer purchasing food or beverage at each venue is given the choice of which organisation they would like to support. The organisation with the most votes at the end of the three month period will receive a $1,000 donation to go towards their cause, and will be invited to attend a celebration evening at the venue. The other organisation will also receive a $200 donation. Following this the venue will elect two new organisations to support.
