Philanthropy

At Light & Wonder, we believe in serving as a responsible corporate steward and giving back to the local communities where we do business across the globe. Our contributions, leadership, and volunteer efforts help create stronger, healthier places for our customers and employees to work and live. 

Through our charitable giving and community outreach programs, Light & Wonder gives back to communities on six continents, contributing more than $1 million annually to non-profit organizations that support education and STEAM, environmental sustainability, food insecurities, responsible gaming, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, social impact and equal rights initiatives, homelessness, veterans and military family programs, disaster relief, domestic violence and many other causes. 

Light & Wonder further supports charitable initiatives and our communities through a variety of programs, including direct financial donations, employee volunteer activities, ad-hoc employee/Company match programs, not-for-profit board service, and opportunities to partner with other companies on community fundraising activities.

If you are a not-for-profit organization and wish to be considered for financial contribution or to inquire about employee volunteer participation in a charitable activity, please click here. All requests should be sent via email on your organization’s official letterhead. Phone solicitations will not be considered. 

Volunteerism & Day of Giving: 

Light & Wonder established the Day of Giving initiative to allow employees to spend up to eight (8) hours per year of paid time off volunteering at their favorite charitable organization. The purpose of the Day of Giving is to support (i) activities that strengthen employee volunteerism, (ii) team bonding opportunities, and (iii) causes that impact the quality of life in the communities where we work and live.  

If you are interested in having your non-profit organization added to our approved list for employee volunteer opportunities, please click here. All requests should be sent via email on your organization’s official letterhead. Phone solicitations will not be considered.
