COMMITED TO GOOD CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP

The Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and its members are committed to being good corporate citizens by supporting responsible gaming organizations, educational programs and charitable organizations.

Each year, AGEM increases its involvement in the various communities it serves and boosts donations to organizations helping to make a difference. New initiatives are considered on an on-going basis and as new concerns arise, AGEM and its vast membership base are quick to act.

While emergency donations have been handed out, for example, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the Joplin tornado disaster, the bulk of AGEM's charitable efforts are focused on ongoing support of responsible gaming and educational efforts.

Responsible Gaming Philanthropy Education

AGEM provides financial support to a number of responsible gaming organizations, including the National Center for Responsible Gaming, the National Council on Problem Gaming, the Nevada Council on Problem Gaming, The Problem Gambling Center and GamCare. AGEM encourages its members to support the cause through their own companies.

AGEM also works closely with the American Gaming Association (AGA) and helps promote the AGA's education and advocacy programs, which include responsible gaming programs.

In addition to supporting responsible gaming and other industry-specific initiatives, AGEM and its members have helped numerous charitable and non-profit organizations in cities and states throughout the U.S., including The Boys and Girls Club, Opportunity Village, United Way, the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross. AGEM members also take pride in their individual philanthropic efforts in the local communities they serve.

AGEM has become active in supporting educational programs that promote gaming as a career. In 2010, AGEM completed its $300,000 total contribution supporting the College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, which offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in electronic engineering with a slot repair emphasis. AGEM has also established scholarship programs at Atlantic Cape Community College in New Jersey and at UNLV through its renowned International Business program. AGEM has also been a substantial donor to the Childrens Discovery Museum in Las Vegas and the Spread The Word Nevada organization that is dedicated to advancing childhood literacy.
