Foxwoods Charitable Giving Program

Mission Statement

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Foxwoods Resort Casino are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of those that are most in need. It is our mission to strengthen the communities in which we live and serve. Our goal is to provide contributions to organizations and programs primarily within our neighborhoods and those beyond that support Native American tribes, human services, community development, diversity, education and the environment.

Community Focus

  • Native American tribes: Programs which enable tribal communities to build self-sufficient infrastructures including, but not limited to, cultural enrichment programs, educational programs and quality health services.
  • Human Services: Community based programs and local chapters of larger organizations that support health and human services for our employees and neighbors.
  • Community Development: Programs that work within our neighborhoods to build community infrastructure and strengthen economic, social and political ties with measurable results.
  • Diversity: Programs supporting diversity and inclusion that encourage economic development, personal and professional growth and resource enhancement.
  • Education: Programs with efforts aimed at building stronger foundations in our neighboring public and private programs from pre-school through higher education.
  • Environment: Organizations that bring awareness and solutions for our changing environment and the need to protect those that live in it. Emphasis on programs with proven and measurable results that have had a positive impact on specific species and communities.
