The MGM Resorts Foundation is proud to announce that it is seeking proposals from nonprofit agencies providing direct services to people living in the communities where our employees live and work for the 2014-2015 Community Grant Fund program.
The Foundation was created to engage our employees in addressing the needs of our community. All of the funds allocated through the Foundation come from employee contributions and their desire to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. To date, our generous employees have contributed more than $54 million to nonprofit agencies and community initiatives that improve the lives of their coworkers and thousands of people in our community.
Foundation grant allocations are 100% employee-driven. The Foundation empowers our employees to choose to make direct contributions to the agency of their choice, or to contribute to the Community Grant Funds, which provides grants to nonprofits through an annual Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Our Community Grant Council (CGC), consists of employee representatives from each property, reviews grant proposals and determines how the Community Grant Funds will be allocated.
MGM Resorts Foundation grants are for a one-year period and do not automatically renew.
