"We are dedicated to supporting the communities where we live, work and conduct business. Through our employees and the MRC Global Foundation we are able to give back to communities around the globe." Andrew Lane, MRC Global Chairman, President & CEO
As part of our commitment to one of our core values - community involvement- we organized the Foundation. We set up this Foundation for the purpose of making donations in our communities for charitable causes, including education, health and human services, arts and humanities and civic projects.
