Investing in Our Communities

We are invested in growing and supporting strong communities.

Our Approach to Investing in Our Communities

As a member of the communities in which we operate, we understand our responsibility to contribute to the social and economic progress of where we live. Our strategies aim to reflect, sustain, and build on the best of a community; creating good jobs, strong wages, resilient skills and workforce development opportunities for our neighbors. 


Our Philanthropy and Community Engagement strategy is in support of our long-range 2025 Social Impact & Sustainability goals and align with specific UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). We established a set of strategic priorities for our Philanthropy and Community Engagement efforts on Workforce Development, Education, and Food Security. These support SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 2: Zero Hunger, respectively.  


While our giving and volunteering efforts do extend beyond these three themes, we deemed these three areas as most strategically relevant to our business and the communities in which we operate and therefore worthy of prioritization. We have multiple desired outcomes from our Philanthropy and Community Engagement efforts. These include, but are not limited to: 

  • Strengthen the economic livelihood, capacity, and resiliency of communities encompassing MGM’s employee and customer footprint
  • Help develop sustainable institutions, smart cities, and ecosystems 
  • Support good jobs, meaningful careers, work, and wages 
  • Promote next-gen skills development, career training and retooling 
  • Collaborate with public sector, policy makers, educators, and nonprofits 

We plan to achieve these outcomes by promoting a culture of inclusion and philanthropy, and by actively encouraging employee volunteering and giving.

We focus on building our communities through:

Employee Giving

The MGM Resorts Foundation, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, was created in 2002 as an employee workplace giving program. The Foundation makes giving easy and convenient for our 52,000+ employees while empowering them to assist our communities through donations to over 1,500 non-profit agencies or programs of their choice. MGM Resorts International assumes all of the administrative costs so 100% of our employee donations reach the community causes.
