A Partner In The Community

MGM Resorts is committed to creating a more sustainable future, while making a difference in the lives of our employees, guests and communities where we operate. At MGM National Harbor, we are deeply dedicated to making positive contributions to the overall quality of life for residents in Prince George’s County, Maryland and to those within neighboring communities in the metropolitan Washington region.

How We Serve Our Community

MGM National Harbor invests in the local community through job creation; support of minority-owned businesses; monetary and in-kind giving to community organizations and local non-profits; engagement and volunteerism; and through environmental sustainability. We focus our support on critical gaps in our communities’ social infrastructure (especially food insecurity, public education and health and wellness initiatives) as well as workforce development and environmental sustainability.

Who We Partner With

We seek to get involved with companies and organizations that align with the following principles:

  • Our contributions must address the most critical community needs, principally in Prince George’s county extending to the greater Maryland area.
  • We strive to develop partnerships and make contributions that result in systemic change and that have long-term impact.
  • While in the process of engaging, we strive to cultivate leadership among our partners and offer expertise in order to sustain our good works.
  • We value sustainable returns on investment and interdependence between our company and the community.
  • Organizations seeking grants or sponsorship monies must demonstrate the practice and advancement of the principles of diversity and inclusion.

Charitable Contributions

We believe that corporations have the responsibility and the resources to affect the world’s most pressing economic, social and environmental issues. The growth and success of our company depends on the business decisions that we make, and the ways in which we harness our influence for good. Through our monetary, in-kind and volunteerism support, we invest in charitable organizations that focus on five critical issues*:

Education: K-12 public education, public colleges and universities, community colleges

Fighting Hunger: Programs that provide access and nutritious meals for food-insecure individuals and families within the community.

Health and Wellness: Programs that encourage a healthy lifestyle and improve one’s well-being while reducing social and health challenges.

Workforce Development: Educational and training programs that align with our business and prepare individuals for sustainable career opportunities.

Environmental Sustainability: Programs that improve the quality of our environment and promote sustainability through education, stewardship of community ecosystems, conservation and beautification.
