MGM Resorts International is gifting $1 million to a Las Vegas autism foundation to help people with developmental disabilities land jobs with the company, President and CEO Bill Hornbuckle said.
The donation to the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation-Ackerman Center will be paid out over five years, said Hornbuckle, who made the announcement Thursday at the group’s annual fundraiser at Allegiant Stadium.
The money will go toward a vocational training program and provide an avenue for autistic adults to get jobs at MGM properties in Las Vegas.
MGM has “a responsibility to contribute to the social and economic progress of our community, including creating pathways to employment,” Hornbuckle said in a statement.
