Beau Rivage Resort & Casino Accepting Nonprofit Grant Proposals for MGM Resorts Foundation 2019 – 2020 Community Grant Fund Program

Beau Rivage

The MGM Resorts Foundation will accept nonprofit grant applications through its online portal through Oct. 4, 2019. Funding will be awarded to local nonprofit agencies that provide services focused on fighting hunger, supporting families and improving the lives of all residents in our communities.

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

“Year after year we are truly amazed at the pure generosity of our employees. In 2018, MGM Resorts employees gave more than $5 million to support nonprofit organizations that serve the communities where we live and work,” said Tony Gladney, vice president of community engagement for MGM Resorts International. “A big ‘thank you’ to those who gave to the thousands of families who will be provided with vital assistance including medical care, mental health counseling, food and shelter.”

Grant decisions will be made by the company’s Community Grant Councils, a voluntary committee that distributes donations not earmarked for specific nonprofit organizations or programs into a grant fund with awards based on a competitive proposal process. Last year, the Council awarded 85 grants. At Beau Rivage, 12 local nonprofits received community grants totaling more than $157,000 through the employee-driven Community Grants Council.

Nonprofit agencies may visit www.mgmresortsfoundation.org/grants 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.
