MSG Entertainment actively engages with and supports the communities we serve through a variety of important initiatives.
We are proud to play a leadership role organizing extraordinary events such as opening The Garden’s doors in February 2020 to 18,000 New York City public school students for an exclusive, free performance of the Broadway production of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and the “12-12-12” benefit concert organized post-Superstorm Sandy, which raised more than $50M for hurricane victims. In addition to these events, the Company provides annual funding to approximately 100 non-profit organizations across the country, as well as in-kind contributions such as tickets, promotional items, and even food to schools, charities and community-based organizations in the local area. MSG Entertainment is also a long-time supporter of the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, the nation’s largest private supporter of pancreatic cancer research, which has directed more than $188 million to research and assembled the best scientific minds to help find a cure.
MSG Entertainment’s ongoing commitment to the community is further illustrated through the Garden of Dreams Foundation. In partnership with MSG Entertainment, Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. and MSG Networks Inc., Garden of Dreams assists young people in need. The Foundation provides access to educational and skills opportunities; mentoring programs and memorable experiences that enhance their lives, help shape their futures and create lasting joy. The Foundation focuses on young people facing illness or financial challenges, as well as children of uniformed personnel who have been lost or injured while serving our communities. Since it was established in 2006, Garden of Dreams has impacted more than 375,000 children and their families. More information is available at www.gardenofdreamsfoundation.org/
