In the Community

The Mohegan Tribe has long been committed to good relations with our neighbors near and far, and the Tribe continues to uphold this today as an integral part of our values and identity. Each year, our business entities participate in hundreds of community support initiatives in each of the communities in which they operate.

Annually more than a million dollars collectively is donated to charitable organizations in the various communities in which the Mohegan Tribe operates.

In Connecticut, Mohegan Sun strives to support the community and local organizations like, United Way, March of Dimes, Special Olympics Connecticut, and the American Red Cross. More than $11 million has been contributed to these regional charities and non-profit organizations over the past several years. Additionally, several Mohegan Tribal members sit on the Board of Directors of more than 50 non-profit organizations and dozens more volunteer their time.

Outside of Connecticut, Mohegan Sun Pocono is a key partner to hundreds of local organizations in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and in Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel contributes to its community, including an annual donation of turkeys to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, providing event space for dozens of charitable events each year, and supporting the United States Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys For Tots program.

Tribal members and employees are actively engaged in food drives, food packaging events and distributions, Read Across America Day, coat drives, holiday toy drives and distributions, Day of Caring, and much more. Over the years, supported food drives have generated more than 73,000 food items for community members, and more than 100,000 meals have been donated to thousands of local households through United Way food pantries staffed by Mohegan employees.

Prior to Thanksgiving, the Mohegan Tribe helps bring Thanksgiving turkeys to those in need as part of its ongoing efforts to support our surrounding communities. Over the past few years, close to 2000 turkeys were donated to food centers in Montville, Norwich, and New London. Each December, the Tribe holds a holiday basket raffle to raise money for local organizations such as Safe Futures in New London.

Over the past twenty years in Connecticut, the Tribe has used its own funds to pay for a $35 million access road to allow Mohegan Sun’s 11 million annual visitors access without clogging residential roads, provided upfront funding for an $11 million water project to ensure that safe, clean drinking water is available for the entire region for decades to come.
The Mohegan Tribe is one of the largest sources of revenue for the state of Connecticut, and in the interest of government relations and aiding the surrounding communities, the Tribe has contributed more than $4 billion to the state budget. The Tribe also supports local businesses by purchasing more than $500 million in goods and services from approximately 720 Connecticut companies.
In the effort to combat problem gambling, more than $10 million has been contributed to CT Council of Problem Gambling. The Mohegan Tribe and Mohegan (corporate) are continuously working with partners on new initiatives, including funding a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) digital intervention aimed at expanding treatment options for individuals suffering from problem gambling.
To provide a healthcare options to Tribal members, employees, and the community, the Tribe opened the Uncasville Medical Center at Mohegan Sun, a 8,500 square foot medical center that offers primary care, walk-in care, and specialty care.
The Mohegan Tribal Fire Department plays an integral part in supporting and protecting the region. Operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, its members provide basic and advanced life support services along with intercept, fire, and hazmat support. Annually, the department answers 4,500 fire and EMS calls from surrounding towns.
The Tribe also participates in neighboring community events and cultural outreach. Montville welcomes Mohegan Tribal members in regalia to march in their annual Memorial Day and Christmas parades, and the Tribe visits local schools or hosts tours for local students to teach Mohegan traditions and stories.
