Giving. It's at the heart of our story.

Grand Casino Mille Lacs and Grand Casino Hinckley believe in giving back to our local communities throughout Minnesota. Through our giving program, Grand Casino places priority to organizations that fit the following criteria:

Our giving is focused in one of three ways:

• Monetary donations – through our Mille Lacs Band Donations Committee, requests are considered on a monthly basis. To learn more about the monetary donation request process, click here.

• Community sponsorships – civic and community activities that are underwritten to raise money for charitable causes and community organizations.

• Product donations – in-kind donations of casino/resort packages – (coupons cannot be replaced, exchanged or extended. Expiration dates are firm)
