The MGM Resorts Foundation has donated almost $2m to 82 different non-profit organizations across the US as it seeks to ‘strengthen the livelihood, capacity and resilience of communities’.
In total, 82 grants have been made to non-profits in the states where MGM Resorts operates, which includes Southern Nevada, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Northeast Ohio, the DC Metropolitan area and Western Massachusetts.
Contributions have been made to the Community Grant Fund by MGM Resorts employees as well as guests to the firm’s venues. The decision on which organizations were awarded the grants was made by MGM’s Community Grants Councils, a group of employees who represent their local region.
“Year after year we are amazed at the generosity of our employees and now guests. In 2022, MGM Resorts employees gave to 82 nonprofit organizations that serve the communities where we live and work,” said Maria Jose Gatti, Executive Director of Community Engagement for MGM Resorts International.
“On behalf of our grant recipients, thank you to those who gave to the Community Grant Fund, providing vital assistance to our communities, including medical care, mental health counseling, food and shelter.”
Established in 2002, the MGM Resorts Foundation serves as an opportunity for the group’s employees to contribute to charitable causes and has raised over $100m for over 1,500 charitable organizations.
