Community Engagement at Atlantis

Community Engagement Programs

Through Atlantis’ Community Engagement Programs, we donate to a number of organizations whose missions are to build stronger communities. Our giving is centered on these focus areas: veterans, public education, health and wellness, hunger relief and shelter, the cultural arts and children’s health.

Atlantis is excited to be the first in northern Nevada to offer slot machine players redeeming a gaming ticket the opportunity to make charitable donations. This new technology is offered by slot manufacturing company, Everi.

With the new charitable option, players can donate their slot machine change to select charities, including Food Bank of Northern Nevada, The American Cancer Society, Great West Division and The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeastern California and Northern Nevada.

The Spirit of Volunteerism
Atlantis Volunteers

As part of Atlantis’ efforts to positively impact the community where we live, work, and raise our families, a Volunteer Committee was created. This group of Team Members volunteers their time to make a positive impact and work together as a team for the greater good.

Every coin that’s thrown into any Atlantis fountain is then collected and donated to Make-A-Wish of Northern California and Northern Nevada. Since the inception of this program in 1992 and in addition to various hosted events on property, Atlantis guests have donated nearly $100,000 to Make-A-Wish.
