Caesars donates 3 3m to non-profit organisations across US

Caesars Entertainment has announced that its corporate giving platform, the Caesars Foundation, has donated over $3.3m to national and local non-profit organisations.

“The gifts focus on organisations that fall into Caesars Entertainment’s core values including non-profits focusing on responsible gaming, sustainability and diversity, equity and inclusion,” a statement from the operator read.

This year’s recipients include a first-ever partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of America, as well as a donation to Meals on Wheels for the 20th consecutive year. Also included in the list were the company’s long time partners Clean the World Foundation, International Center for Responsible Gaming, and National Park Trust.

Public Education Foundation, Second Wind Dreams, and Women’s Business Enterprise National Council also received funding from the foundation this time around.

“At Caesars Entertainment, we’re focused on giving back to the communities where our guests and Team Members live, work and play,” said Caesars Entertainment SVP of Corporate Social Responsibility Heather Rapp.

“These funds will provide critical support for communities and programs in need across the US.”

As noted by Caesars Entertainment, the Caesars Foundation is a private foundation funded by resorts owned or operated by Caesars Entertainment, and is the entity through which the group funds non-profit programmes.

The company added: “The Foundation is dedicated to supporting the communities in which Caesars Entertainment operates with an ongoing commitment to economic development while improving the quality of life of Team Members and their families, the community, and society at large.”
