Challenging conventions
for our communities.

We're in this
with you

We're dedicated to the communities in which we live and operate. Through our charitable foundation and the PENN Diversity Committee, we’ve created employment opportunities and sustainability programs — and we’ve provided disaster relief to those in need. All in an effort to improve the lives of our team members, their families and members of our communities.

Doing right by our communities

Our communities are the backbone of our business — and we believe it’s important to invest time and energy into the people and places around us. In 2005, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, we launched the PENN Entertainment Foundation. We were able to assist nearly 2,000 team members who were impacted by the storm, giving them much needed support, food, water, clothing and shelter. Today, the foundation supports countless local nonprofit organizations in our corporate regions and in host communities throughout North America. When not focused on public health crises or natural disasters, the foundation puts its efforts into community development, human services, cultural affairs and diversity — as well as programs that support veterans and active-duty military and their families.

Safe gaming is our responsibility

We care deeply about our valued guests. That’s why we’ve established a comprehensive framework to promote a culture of responsible gaming, from online help to discrete in-person assistance. Additionally, we partner with the International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG) — and our internal committee oversees our programs and consults with our partners.

Responsible Gaming

Responsible gaming starts with us

Our Responsible Gaming Committee works to promote a culture of responsible gaming from within. They oversee programs at each of our properties — providing more than 20,000 hours of training to our team members in the last year alone. Learn more about the committee’s efforts.

Innovating responsible gaming online

Responsible gaming isn’t just for in-person gambling. We’ve developed a robust online program that promotes responsible digital and interactive gaming. We diligently confirm user identities, employ an “exclude one, exclude all” policy — and we allow patrons to voluntarily place themselves on exclusion lists.

mywallet gives our guests a secure, convenient, cashless payment method for in-person gaming. Users can store multiple payment methods and easily move funds in and out of the casino — and back into their bank accounts. And with spending limit features, mywallet promotes responsible gaming. It’s a big step forward in enhancing our patrons’ gaming experience.

Advancing diversity. Creating opportunity. Supplying our business. 

We’re creating diversity in every aspect of our business, including our supply chain. Our corporate-wide Supplier Diversity Initiative coordinates efforts across all our properties to develop new opportunities for businesses owned by minorities, women, disabled individuals and veterans. In 2021, we enhanced our efforts through a membership in the National Minority Supplier Development Council.

For the past nine years, we’ve been ranked in the top two Employers of First Choice by Bristol Associates-Spectrum Gaming’s Executive Satisfaction Survey. And as a long-standing good corporate citizen, we’re deeply committed to acting as a responsible steward of our finite natural resources. 

  • Leadership Excellence at PENN (LEAP)

    LEAP is a career and leadership development program that accelerates the development of recent graduates into entry-level leadership jobs. 

  • STEM Scholarship Programs

    As a company, we’ve dedicated over $4 million to fund STEM scholarships at HBCUs — and help create internship opportunities at PENN Entertainment. 

  • Hiring Our Heroes

    We’ve partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation to connect veterans, service members and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities. 

Supporting those who served

Honoring our nation’s heroes is one of our top priorities. Through recruitment efforts, recognition of service, ongoing charitable donations and community support, we’re helping members of our own internal team. 

And for our guests, myheroes is a loyalty program that offers active-duty military, veterans, first responders and a chosen companion access to exclusive discounts and offers.
