The MGM Resorts Foundation will accept nonprofit grant applications through its online portal until September 28, 2018. 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, Mississippi and Maryland.
Grant decisions will be made by the company’s Community Grant Councils, a voluntary committee that distributes donations not ear-marked 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.
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.
