MSG values the community in which we work. MSG Cares is an employee-led, multi-faceted initiative that supports nonprofit programs that are making strides in the areas MSG works – homelessness, education, workforce development, food and nutrition, and the environment.

Encouraging Employee Volunteerism

Employees are encouraged and afforded opportunities to extend the spirit of service to making a difference in the community and with those in need. The MSG Cares team works with partner organizations to design service projects, collect needed resources, and support fundraising campaigns. MSG has a 1:1 corporate match program to double the value of every  employee contribution.

Empowering Local Organizations

Our nonprofit partners embody MSG values and are embraced by our staff so that we can experience positive social change that comes from collective action. Since MSG Cares was founded, we have supported more than a dozen organizations, including UNICEF, Catholic Charities, Martha’s Table, the Washington English Center, and Bright Beginnings. Our current partners include:

Bethesda Cares is a community outreach program for individuals experiencing homelessness in Bethesda, MD. It places people into permanent, supportive housing, easing life and providing safety, and keeping low-income tenants from eviction. 
 
Friendship Place provides housing for people experiencing homelessness in the DC region. Its person-focused programs empower participants to rebuild their lives, find homes, get jobs, and reconnect with friends, family, and the community - permanently. 
 
Northern Virginia Family Service provides the essential building blocks for financial, emotional, and physical wellbeing for individuals and families living in poverty, serving as leaders and innovators for the Northern Virginia community. 

Supporting Global Populations

Our philanthropy extends beyond borders to support children, youth, and families globally. In 2018, MSG Cares partnered with The Citizen’s Foundation to build a school in Karachi, Pakistan that provides free education to approximately 109 students in grades six to 10. A new initiative to build a dialysis center in Pakistan is currently underway.
