SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITIES
Crown Resorts believes in supporting the communities in which it operates. Crown Resorts' stakeholders expect us to act responsibly and ethically and we engage regularly with them in order to align our business activities with community expectations. Together with our employees, we support my community causes and organisations through our resort-specific community partnerships, employee volunteering opportunities and the Crown Resorts Foundation.
Crown Resorts' community support comes in many different forms. Through our resorts, we are able to support charities by subsidising, promoting and hosting their fundraising events and providing raffle prizes. In addition, , many of our employees enthusiastically volunteer their time to support a wide range of causes.
We look for opportunities to leverage our corporate networks, funds and people to deliver the best outcomes for our community partners. This year, the Children’s Cancer Foundation’s Million Dollar Lunch was once again hosted by Crown Melbourne. With the support of its suppliers, Crown Resorts committed to delivering the event cost-free, significantly assisting the Foundation to raise over $2.1 million, which will be used to fund childhood cancer research programs, clinical care and family support.
Within our business we also look for opportunities to leverage our skill sets to support communities in need. Crown Perth’s chefs once again provided more than 30,000 meals toPerth’s vulnerable and homeless through Foodbank Western Australia, continuing this longstanding commitment.
Many of Crown’s community partners, in addition to receiving support from the business, benefit from fundraising and volunteer support from Crown staff. Within business departments, teams organise their own fundraising events for charities such as SIDS and Kids, the Cancer Council, Oxfam and Jeans for Genes. More formal fundraising activities are organised in partnership with the Crown Resorts Foundation by the Employee Advisory Committee.
