When the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians bought the Palms last year from Red Rock Resorts, leaders of the tribe were outspoken about getting involved in the philanthropic community in Las Vegas.
Jessica Stops, vice president of strategic philanthropy for the band, is on the forefront of that effort.
About seven months after the California-based tribe’s reopening of the 766-room resort — it was closed from March 2020 until late April — Stops recently answered some questions about its philanthropic endeavors.
The San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority recently announced it plans to award $1.2 million in grant monies to 30 Southern Nevada charities.
