Charitable Funding Opportunities

Caesars Entertainment supports our communities through charitable donations to eligible organizations. These donations take the form of monetary funds and/or in-kind contributions.housing

In-kind contributions are donations of goods, like tickets to shows at our venues, and services, such as providing meeting spaces. The same constraints that govern proper management of monetary funds also apply to in-kind contributions.

Strategic Community Impact Areas for Giving

Caesars Entertainment seeks to do the best with its charitable contributions. As such, we have identified high-impact focus areas that we think are particularly beneficial for our communities. Your request is more likely to be approved if it benefits one of these strategic focus areas.

If your organization’s mission is not aligned with a Strategic Community Impact Area, please fully explain the focus area of your request, as properties and regions may still consider the request if it falls under their local priority area.

  • Older Individuals: Organizations that focus on helping the aging population live more fulfilling lives. This includes organizations focused on issues such as social isolation, mental health, and medical issues that disproportionately affect the aging population (55 and older).
  • Environmental & Social Sustainability: Organizations that focus on meeting the needs of today without compromising the future of environmental and social sustainability. This includes:
    • Non-profit, non-governmental, and advocacy organizations that positively impact climate, water, waste, energy, and food security
    • Organizations that ensure social-economic equity, access to resources and good jobs, while protecting vulnerable populations from abuse and exploitation (e.g. anti-human trafficking, affordable housing, immigration integration, homeless services and social services, children and family services, and neighborhood development projects)
  • Education & Equity: Organizations that assist with education, workforce development, job training, and awareness campaigns such as degree programs, continuing education, and public awareness campaigns.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
