Submitted by MGM Resorts International

The MGM Resorts Foundation will accept nonprofit grant applications through its online portal until Sept. 23, 2016. Funding will be awarded to local nonprofit agencies that provide services focused on strengthening neighborhoods, strengthening children and providing strength in difficult times. 

As a result of the contributions made by MGM Resorts International employees, The MGM Resorts Foundation will award qualifying agencies in Southern Nevada, Michigan and Mississippi. 

Grant decisions will be made by the Company’s Community Grant Councils (CGC). This year, funding limits were increased so that organizations can have a greater impact on the communities they serve, said Shelley Gitomer, Vice President of Philanthropy and Community Engagement.

“Last year, MGM Resorts employees showed that they care about their communities by giving more than $6 million to support nonprofit organizations where we live and work,” Gitomer said. “Thanks to their generosity, The MGM Resorts Foundation was able to award 93 grants in 2015. Through that money, thousands of children and families were given medical care, mental health counseling, food, shelter and other important services.”

Nonprofit agencies should go to to review eligibility criteria and begin the online grant application process. Nonprofits are required to provide support of a Community Grant Fund focus area and operations must be in existence for a minimum of 36 months to be considered.
