San Manuel Band of Mission Indians Named “Responsible Business of the Year”
Global Gaming Awards 2021 recently named the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians as the “Responsible Business of the Year” for its significant contributions to the community during the coronavirus pandemic. This award acknowledges the Tribe and its gaming enterprise for its commitment to corporate social responsibility in the gaming industry.
“Having San Manuel recognized as the ‘Responsible Business of the Year’ is a testament to our Tribal values and we are proud to receive recognition of our philanthropy,” said Chairman Ken Ramirez. “Congratulations to the entire team on a job well done. I look forward to working together to continue these meaningful efforts to give back to our community and those in need.”
Giving back is part of the Tribe’s heritage and core mission, leading to its support of thousands of non-profit organizations in the local community and throughout Indian Country with more than $290 million in philanthropic grants since 2003. In addition, earlier this year, it assisted small businesses within the Tribe’s ancestral territory through a $1 million small business relief fund. The fund awarded $20,000 grants each to 50 small businesses affected by the pandemic.
