Casinos Austria launches „Our commitment to Austria“

Casinos Austria has been supporting socially relevant projects, institutions and initiatives in Austria since it was founded 56 years ago. The company has established itself as a long-standing, reliable and strong partner to numerous aid organisations and thus to Austrian society.

Humanitarian commitment

Based on the same inner conviction, the company is now taking its humanitarian commitment a decisive step further. With its "Our Commitment to Austria" initiative, Casinos Austria is taking its socio-political commitment in and for Austria to a new level.

Providing social impetus

The twelve Austrian casinos, which as leading tourism operators have already been responsible for regional value creation far beyond their own sales performance, are now also acting as social drivers in their region. Since the beginning of September 2023, all casino locations have been supporting three regionally based aid organisations as part of the "Our commitment to Austria" initiative.

Support on three levels

The focus is on social projects in the immediate vicinity of the twelve casino locations. All casinos are now partners of three organisations each, with support provided on three levels: sponsorship, a casino on tour, which generates donations, and corporate volunteering by employees of the respective casino.

180 additional social activities

By the end of 2024, this will result in 180 additional activities for people and society in the regions with 44 partnerships across Austria. This is additional because existing sponsor partnerships remain unaffected and will be continued. 

Employees contribute to social commitment

Casinos Austria's employees also play a central role in this, helping to support and breathe life into our social commitment. Through corporate volunteering assignments for the new partner organisations, helping hands are lent wherever they are needed.

Partner organisations with social concerns

The new partner organisations - including cancer charities, integrative projects and women's shelters - have one thing in common despite all their differences: they make a socio-politically relevant and indispensable contribution to their region and usually have to make do with limited financial resources and few, often voluntary, employees. Thanks to the partnership with Casinos Austria, they will have significantly more room for manoeuvre in the future.

Sponsorship and Support

The companies in the Casinos Austria & Austrian Lotteries Group are all strong and reliable partners when it comes to sponsoring and supporting initiatives and projects that directly benefit people in Austria. We are committed to numerous organisations, including Licht ins Dunkel, the Austrian Hospice umbrella association, Krebshilfe Österreich, various women's, men's and disabled sports associations and many more.

Since 2022, the Casinos Austria Group has united its diverse responsibility activities under the thematic umbrella of playsponsible. As a new strong element of responsibility in the Group, Casinos Austria's "Our Commitment to Austria" initiative is now also embedded in playsponsible.
