MGM Resorts Foundation gives $2.0m to non-profit organisations
| By Robert Fletcher
MGM Resorts Foundation, the charitable arm of MGM Resorts International, has awarded almost $2.0m (£1.7m/€2.0m) worth of grants to non-profit organisations around the US.
Funds were handed out to groups active in areas in which MGM operates, including Nevada, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Washington DC and Massachusetts.
The grants were the result of contributions made to the Community Grant Fund by MGM Resorts employees as well as guests at its properties.
The organisations that are awarded funds are decided by the Community Grant Councils, a voluntary committee of employees who represent their respective regions.
Since its inception in 2002, the foundation has raised more than $100m, and supported over 1,500 charitable organisations.
“Year after year we are amazed at the generosity of our employees and now guests. In 2022, MGM Resorts employees gave to 82 non-profit organisations that serve the communities where we live and work,” MGM Resorts’ executive director of community engagement Maria Jose Gatti said.
“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 counselling, food and shelter.”
