MGM Resorts has been named an honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
The award recognizes MGM Resorts as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the United States, according to a national standard for superior corporate citizenship that showcases how companies can use their time, skills and resources for positive impact on their communities.
The Civic 50 honorees were announced at the Points of Light Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota where corporate citizenship leaders from across the country gathered to discuss social innovation, civic engagement and cross-sector collaboration.
“The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment of community and civic engagement of America’s leading brands,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO, Points of Light. “Points of Light believes that people drive change in addressing society’s growing and most profound challenges. The business community plays an important role in creating and delivering innovative solutions that drive social good in the communities where they live and work.”
The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more and are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program ‒ including social investment, integration, institutionalization and impact.
“We are proud to receive this honor on behalf of the many MGM Resorts employees who dedicate their dollars and their time to volunteer to help those in need,” said Phyllis A. James, the company’s Chief Diversity and Corporate Responsibility Officer. “This recognition is a testament to the strong value MGM places on community support and service to our neighborhoods and schools. Our employees give regardless of their own circumstances and are truly the best examples of how we care for one another and our communities.”

The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform The Civic 50 scoring process. The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities.
