Improving Today and Building an Exceptional Tomorrow.
The Wynn Employee Foundation raises funds from employees and fosters volunteerism among team members of Wynn Resorts, giving back where it helps most – at home.
Giving Week & Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday, also known as #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by harnessing the power of social media and showcasing the power of collaboration. With progressive and innovative thinking, Wynn Las Vegas hosted a week-long initiative tailored Giving Week, to combine volunteerism and fundraising. Company-wide, over 1,770 volunteers participated in Giving Week Initiatives, marking the largest single week for participation in our history!
Wynn Las Vegas’ Giving Week featured fundraising events such as a Golf Experience on Wynn Golf Course, a Cookie Decorating Master Class, a Pizza Making Master Class and a bake sale. Combined, these events raised over $15,000 for the Wynn Employee Foundation. In addition, the company donated a benefit performance of Le Reve – The Dream for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Foundation; this event raised nearly $150,000 for the organization. Volunteer events during Giving Week included a Feed the Funnel event on Giving Tuesday in which volunteers packed nearly 300,000 meals at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Boston Harbor. The Las Vegas Great Santa Run closed out Giving Week; 150 volunteers participated in the run which benefitted Opportunity Village.
Wynn Macau had nearly 1,000 participants leading up to and during Giving Tuesday events. Volunteers visited five community centers bringing holiday decor and distributing scarves previously crafted by employees. On Giving Tuesday, volunteers participated in Christmas Gift Packing with Fuhong Members for the Pou Lei Centre of Fuhong Society.
The Shade Tree of Las Vegas
The second quarter of the year marked the completion of The Shade Tree Revitalization Partnership. Wynn engineers, accompanied by the Wynn Design and Development team successfully completed enhancements to the 3rd floor living space as well as the restrooms, nursing room, security officer booths and exterior security panels. Additional improvements included renovation of the first floor common area, kitchen redesign and renovation, new client entrance, installation of a new playground, renovation of the IT room and the basement. Over 170 business vendors collaborated on this initiative, valuing the final renovation over $2.5M. Throughout this project, Wynn Las Vegas alone provided 2,717 hours of pro bono services to The Shade Tree in the areas of food safety, security, engineering and marketing – amounting to more than $295,000 in value – and $250,000 in overall construction costs.
