What is the location of the donations to the community grant fund?

Specific non-profit organizations that directly receive funds from the grant are not worked with by the Community Grant Fund. Various charity initiatives are selected during a competitive process, which is on a proposal basis. A committee of volunteers coming from MGM Resorts employees assesses the proposals and allocates the grants according to the regions where the company operates.

Since 2002, the MGM Resorts Foundation has collected over $100 million in donations, which have been distributed to over 1,500 non-profit organizations and charities. The Foundation wants to provide support to the development of local communities in terms of resilience, better job opportunities, the improvement of various skills, and so on.
