The Milwaukee Cricket Club, Inc. (MCC) embarked on its first annual goodwill tour to Jamaica on April 3, 1996. The major purpose of the tour was to provide goodwill to the children of Jamaica and at the same time, have fun playing some of the local cricket teams.

The following is a summary of goodwill projects accomplished over the years:
