LAS VEGAS—The MGM Resorts Foundation has awarded nearly $2 million in the form of 82 grants to nonprofit organizations located in communities around the country in which MGM Resorts operates, including Southern Nevada, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Northeast Ohio, the DC Metropolitan area, and Western Massachusetts. Funding was awarded to organizations that provide basic needs services to community residents.
The funds are the result of contributions made to the Community Grant Fund by MGM Resorts employees as well as guests. Grant decisions are made by the Company’s Community Grant Councils, a voluntary committee of employees who represent their respective regions. The committee distributes donations not ear-marked for specific nonprofit organizations or programs into a grant fund with awards based on a competitive proposal process.
“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.”
The MGM Resorts Foundation was established in 2002 as an opportunity for MGM Resorts employees to contribute to important charitable causes. Since inception, the Foundation has raised more than $100 million and supported more than 1,500 charitable organizations.
