The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas adds charities to slot donation program

8 October 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is proud to announce that guests will have the opportunity to give back to four new charities represented within the Giving Module Program through the remainder of 2019. The new charities are the Nevada Humane Society, Safe Nest, Project 150 and Veteran’s Village.

The first of its kind on the Las Vegas Strip, The Cosmopolitan’s Giving Module Program, powered by EveriCares, launched at the resort in late July. Since the introduction of the program, the Giving Module has raised close to $12,000 in its first quarter of operations alone for the first instated charities: The Shade Tree, Opportunity Village, Three Square Food Bank and Team Rubicon. The revolutionary program allows guests the option to donate their slot earnings to one of four pre-selected non-profit organizations when redeeming a slot ticket voucher on any of the casino’s 12 ticket redemption kiosks. One hundred percent of the donations collected go directly to the charity of choice. If guests choose not to donate, they will receive their slot earnings directly at the kiosk. The average donation per individual was $0.38, with 11% of guests opting in to donate.

The Cosmopolitan is dedicated to maintaining social consciousness through their ongoing charitable efforts at the resort including its dedication to the veteran community in Las Vegas. In just under four years, the resort has hired more than 625 veterans and military spouses. Employees in all departments within the resort have worked together to positively impact the lives of military members and their families. A testament to the resort’s charitable giving efforts, The Cosmopolitan’s culmination of efforts produced more than $1.68 million in monetary donations in 2018 and scored 100% on Human Rights Campaign “Best Places to Work.”

Organizations interested in benefiting from The Cosmopolitan’s Giving Module program can apply online to be considered for donations through Casinos Care. Through this program, The Cosmopolitan further continues its reinforcement of charitable giving with special focus on support of the military and veteran community, diversity and inclusion, physical and intellectual health, learning and student enrichment, and food and hunger relief.
