THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS REACHES RECORD BREAKING NUMBER OF DONATIONS TOWARDS THE RESORT’S ONGOING GIVING MODULE PROGRAM
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is pleased to announce its industry-leading Giving Module program has garnered more than $30,000 in donations so far this year, with a record-breaking amount of upwards of $8,000 in donations made in May alone. Local charitable beneficiaries are rotated quarterly, with recipients for Q2 including Hope For The City, Clark County Public Education Foundation, Parent Citywide African American Educational Focus Group and U.S. VETS – Las Vegas.
Over the past ten years, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has remained at the forefront of charitable giving, remaining steadfast in its efforts to give back to the local community. The first of its kind on the Strip, the EveriCares Giving Module debuted at the resort in 2019. Since then, more than $101,000 has been donated to 28 local non-profit organizations. In alignment with The Cosmopolitan’s ongoing commitment to further support the selected charities, the resort continues to institute its ongoing pledge to match up to $10,000 each quarter. As a result, the resort has provided more than $45,000 in matched donation payments to date.
“Charitable giving has remained a major pillar in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ ethos for over a decade,” said The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Chief People Officer, Daniel Espino. “We are thrilled with how our guests have continued to support the Giving Module program, especially with many experiencing such hardship following last year. We look forward to continuing to support local non-profits through this groundbreaking donation forum.”
The resort’s Giving Module allows guests to donate spare change to any of the four pre-selected nonprofit organizations for that quarter when redeeming their slot earnings at a ticket redemption kiosk. Guests can choose to donate to a single charity or evenly distribute the spare change to all beneficiaries. One hundred percent of the donations collected are given directly to each non-profit. Throughout the first half of 2021, the average donation per individual was $0.22, with more than 240,000 tickets redeemed since January. Heading into the third quarter, the resort has selected three new charitable beneficiaries for the program, including the Disabled American Veterans, providing lifetime support to veterans and their families; Epicuren Charitable Foundation, working to establish annual scholarships for culinary students; The Just One Project providing food to those in need and Refuge for Women, empowering sexually exploited women to live a life of freedom.
For over ten years, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has worked with 540 charitable organizations, putting forth more than $5.6 million in total charitable donations with special focus on diversity and inclusion, learning and student enrichment, food and hunger relief, military and veterans and accessible art. A testament to the resort’s social consciousness, the resort received 100 percent perfect scoring on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index eight consecutive years in a row (2012-2020).
