SANDS CARES

A firm believer in the importance of corporate social responsibility, we engage with the local Macao community as part of Sands Cares – the corporate giving program of Las Vegas Sands.

Supporting Local Communities

We pride ourselves on our long-lasting partnerships created with local organizations, many of which we have supported for several years.

2018 CHARITABLE DONATIONS

In 2018, we recorded over MOP 6.7 million in total cash donations to charitable organizations focused in eight areas:

Accident & emergency relief funds The elderly
Low income families Animal protection
Education Social rehabilitation
Children & youth development Responsible gaming

As part our ongoing global partnership with Clean the World, community volunteers and 270 team members jointly built 35,000 hygiene kits from sterilized soaps collected from hospitality partners like Sands China.

Each year, we jointly organized the IC2 Charity Fund Fun Walk with the Macau IC2 Association, raising awareness of the well-being of people with intellectual disabilities while promoting green travel, encouraging social interactions and fostering inclusion.

In 2017 and again in 2018, Macau fell in direct course with super typhoons Hato and Mangkhut. Our Community Affairs team reached out to our close community partners to provide assistance from parking spaces to extra man-power to prepare for the storm.

Sands Cares Ambassador Program 10TH Anniversary

Since 2005, Sands China team members have been volunteering their time in the community in their off-duty hours, engaging with community groups to help make Macao a better place to live for all. Realising that many team members were using their spare time to volunteer in the community, Sands China decided to formalise these efforts in 2009 through the establishment of the Sands Cares Ambassador programme.
