At Isle of Capri Casinos®, we believe in being good neighbors. This means, in addition to donating funds and support services to community groups, we also encourage our employees to be actively involved in the communities in which we operate. Our company founder, the late Bernard Goldstein, felt so strongly about community spirit that we launched Community Aces, our charitable giving and volunteer program honoring his legacy.
We make a difference in our community in a variety of ways, including volunteer hours, financial donations, and in-kind donations. If you would like to request volunteers, a donation for your non-profit organization, or to host a fundraiser at Farmer's Pick® Buffet, please download our Community Aces® Request Form and send along with 501(c)(3) documentation to:

Missouri Veterans History Project
History books record the stories of battles, military leaders and various campaigns. But, oral histories tell the stories of the rank and file individuals – soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen – the vast scope of our nation’s history told in the voices of those who served.
Missouri Veterans History Project ensures that the stories of these honorable men and women are preserved, enabling us to hear their own words. We need your help to ensure that we capture the experiences of our veterans. Each oral history requires three volunteers – an interviewer, a videographer and an individual to transcribe.
If you have a few hours per month, and would like to volunteer, please consider volunteering for the Missouri Veterans History Project.
