MGM Resorts Foundation Awards Nearly $2 Million in Grants to Area Nonprofits


LA VEGAS – The MGM Resorts Foundation (the “Foundation”) has awarded nearly $2 million in the form of 82 grants to nonprofit organizations located in communities across the country in which MGM Resorts operates, including the South Nevada, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, northeastern Ohio, the DC metropolitan area, and western Massachusetts. Funds have been awarded to organizations that provide basic services to residents of the community.

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 intended 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 our 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 have donated to the Community Grants Fund, providing vital assistance to our communities including medical care, mental health counseling, food and shelter.”

The MGM Resorts Foundation was established in 2002 to enable MGM Resorts employees to contribute to important charitable causes. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $100 million and supported over 1,500 charities.

MGM Resorts is committed to building community livelihoods, capacity and resilience, building sustainable institutions, supporting good jobs, promoting the development of next generation skills and collaborating with the public sector, policy makers, educators and non-profit organizations.
