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.
Lion Habitat Ranch
The Wynn Employee Foundation inspires philanthropy in our community and is the charitable giving vehicle for our employees to give to organizations that are near and dear to their hearts, both with their time and financial giving.
Recently, our employees visited the Lion Habitat Ranch of Las Vegas to assist in preparing the facility for visitors, clean Ozzie the Giraffes’ run and feast room, as well as assist the organization in other special projects as needed.
The Lion Habitat Ranch has been in operation since 1989 and is dedicated to providing a loving home for all of the lions and animals in its care for the rest of their natural lives. Many of the lions are retired from the MGM Grand Habitat and are rescued from local and national zoos. The Lion Habitat Ranch is a family friendly organization; Wynn employees receive a 30% discount on entry fees by showing their employee ID!
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.
MESSAGE FROM CEO MATT MADDOX
“Wynn Resorts is a company dedicated to excellence, and that focus on excellence also extends to our commitment to social responsibility. Over the years, Wynn Resorts has built a culture of giving and the individual passion of our employees has made giving back a part of who we are. It is that spirit of service and philanthropic giving that has naturally led to involvement with the corporate matching gifts program and diverse volunteer activities ranging from work with school-age children, disadvantaged families, environmental cleanups, and more. Our employees care, they serve and they give – it is imperative that we as a company continue to support this.”
