For more than 10 years, Graton Resort & Casino has called the Bay Area home. Our enduring support of our local community shapes our commitment to the ideal of helping people through grants, volunteering, in-kind contributions, sponsorships, and partnerships. In order to achieve the greatest impact with our resources, the majority of our giving is focused in the North Bay, where our valued Team Members and Guests reside, as they make our charitable work possible.
