Giving back and pitching in. It's in our DNA.

The PENN Entertainment Foundation was launched in the wake of Hurricane Katrina to assist nearly 2,000 team members who were impacted by the storm — giving them much needed support, food, water, clothing and shelter. Today, our foundation is proud to support countless local nonprofit organizations throughout North America. From community development efforts, like rebuilding playgrounds and promoting education, to health services and support for veterans and active-duty military, we’re focused on giving back to our people and our communities.
