Caring for the people
and places around us.

We're helping where we can

We're dedicated to the communities in which we live and operate. Through our charitable foundation and the PENN Diversity Council, we’ve created employment opportunities and sustainability programs — and provided disaster relief to those in need 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.

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. We partner with several responsible gaming organizations and maintain an internal committee to oversee our RG programs and efforts.

Responsible gaming starts with us

Our Responsible Gaming Committee works to promote a culture of responsible gaming from within. The committee oversees programs at each of our properties — providing more than 22,000 hours of training to our team members in the last year alone. Learn more about the committee’s efforts.

RG is embedded across our platforms

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.
