The Caesars Foundation is the 2011 recipient of the LVNBA Corporate Service Award. The Corporate Service Award is given to a local corporation that has demonstrated a commitment to diversity at all levels (e.g., hiring, retention, promotion, vendor contracting, grant funding, community service offerings, etc.) and by engaging in such efforts has yielded a positive benefit to the local community. We are particularly interested in those individuals, heads of non-profits, and corporations that have visibly engaged in community service efforts in the African-American community. Recipients do not have to be individuals employed in the legal profession or heads of local non-profit, legal organizations. Recipients of the Corporate Service Award may not be entities whose sole purpose is the provision of legal services to the community in exchange for compensation.
The Caesars Foundation is a private foundation funded by a percentage of operating income from Caesars Entertainment’s resorts. The Foundation is the entity through which Caesars Entertainment funds programs and projects of $10,000 or more, as well as not-for-profit giving requirements imposed by certain operating jurisdictions. The Foundation’s objective is to strengthen organizations and programs in the communities where it’s employees and their families live and work.
