AEG receives an extraordinary number of requests for cash and in-kind contributions from around the world, numbering many more than it can accommodate. These guidelines are designed to assist organizations in understanding the company’s charitable priorities. However, the company reserves the right to make all determinations regarding the organizations and programs to which it will provide support. When a request is denied, it does not imply that the applicant’s organization or program is not vital or valued. It may be that the request does not fall within these guidelines or focus areas, or that available funds for the relevant period have been committed to other worthy organizations.
AEG cannot accommodate every request, and accordingly, it is inevitable that even requests that are consistent with our guidelines will not be granted. Generally, the company does not consider unsolicited requests for financial support.
In addition to direct contributions, AEG supports charitable organizations through in-kind and ticket donations. These guidelines may be modified at any time without notice. The company reserves the right to change, suspend, revoke or terminate its charitable giving at any time, and to deviate from these guidelines at its own discretion.
AEG only considers organizations meeting the following eligibility criteria:
- Organizations based in the United States must be verifiable through Guide Star and provide non-profit articles of incorporation;
- Organizations must represent that they operate within the parameters of all applicable laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.S. Patriot Act and all applicable laws;
- Organizations must represent that they do not discriminate in employment practices or services based on race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age, marital status, mental or physical ability, sexual orientation or gender identity.
