Sporting and Not for Profit

  

The Melbourne Cricket Club (Australia)

The Melbourne Cricket Club is a unique organization.  It is a private club, incorporated under the Melbourne Cricket Club Act 1974, boasting by far the biggest membership of any sporting club in Australia.  The MCC also has the public responsibility of managing one of the largest and the most successful stadiums in Australia and the world - the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Along with the playing of cricket, today's MCC is an umbrella organization for hundreds of participants in 11 sporting sections - baseball, bowls, croquet, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, real tennis, shooting, squash and tennis. The club's principal public role, however, remains the progressive management and development of the MCG - a stadium which shares a unique relationship with its local community and boasts a rare magnetism in attracting visitors from all corners of the globe.

Heartland Alliance (USA)

Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights helps people living in poverty or danger improve their lives and realize their human rights. From a refugee fleeing violence and torture to a resident of public housing trying to escape the cycle of poverty, Heartland Alliance helps people in the toughest of circumstances - who often have no place else to go.

We bring a human rights perspective to our work.  We believe human rights are both about issues abroad as well as issues in our own backyard - including freedom from poverty, access to health care, a roof over your head, and fair treatment in the justice system.

For more than 100 years, Heartland Alliance has provided hope, opportunity, and solutions - through both services and advocacy. Our work spans across four key areas, creating paths from crisis to stability and on to success:
