LAS VEGAS – When it comes to The MGM Resorts Foundation, employees surpassed two major milestones this year. More than 50 percent participated and their collective totals topped $5 million.
This year’s campaign total, $5,001,534, is the largest in six years, while this year’s total participation rate climbed nine percentage points to 51 percent.
“That’s the really important thing – that more than half of our employees now give through The MGM Resorts Foundation,” said Vice President of Philanthropy Shelley Gitomer. “I am very proud of our employees. It really says a lot about them: how dedicated they are to their communities, how generous they are, and how giving back has really become part of the culture across MGM Resorts.”
Ten resorts exceeded 50 percent participation this year: Circus Circus Las Vegas, ARIA, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand Las Vegas, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York and The Signature.
