Commitment to the Community

As part of its core philosophy for more than 40 years, Station Casinos has been giving back to the community throughout every level of operation at Station Casinos.

We believe it's our privilege and responsibility to help build and maintain a happy and healthy community and by giving back we can assist others who may simply need a helping hand.

Throughout the years, the Company has supported hundreds of charities as well as created a special partnership with the Clark County School District through our signature Smart Start initiative.

Smart Start

Since 2000, Station Casinos has been proud of its Smart Start school partnership initiative with the Clark County School District (CCSD) to support high-need elementary schools* with financial and volunteer support to help improve education and provide classroom resources.

Since 2001, Station Casinos has contributed more than $2.6 million to local high-need elementary schools.

Additionally, Station Casinos' properties are paired up with an elementary school and offer year-round support, such as volunteering in the classrooms, mentoring students, hosting special events and donating needed resources such as backpacks and school supplies for the students.

The 11 Smart Start partner elementary schools are:

  • Rex Bell Elementary School (Partner: Palace Station)
  • Laura Dearing Elementary School (Partner: Boulder Station)
  • Ollie Detwiler Elementary School (Partner: Fiesta Rancho)
  • P.A. Diskin Elementary School (Partner: Red Rock Resort)
  • Mabel Hoggard Elementary School (Partner: Santa Fe Station)
  • Howard E. Hollingsworth Elementary School (Partner: Sunset Station)

  • Whitney Elementary School (Partners: Station Casinos Corporate and Wildfire Gaming)
  • Robert L. Taylor Elementary School (Partner: Green Valley Ranch Resort)
  • Helen Jydstrup Elementary School (Partner: Palms Casino Resort)

Smart Start funds are administered through the Clark County Public Education Foundation.

*High-need elementary schools are those that have been identified by the CCSD as schools that do not meet certain established federal criteria.
