Charitable Gambling

Charity gambling is the practice where typical gambling 'games' such as bingo, roulette, lottery, slot machines, etc. are overseen by a charity or group of charities. The profits from the venture go to the charity or group of charities, rather than to a municipality or private casino. Sometimes this occurs as a 'one time event' during a casino night or such type party. In other cases, charity interests maintain ongoing gambling concerns.

What does the Osseo Lions do with funds collected by charitable gambling?

We readily accept donation requests for funds from our charitable gambling proceeds as long as the request and the persons and or organization making the request meets the criteria of Lawful purposes set forth by the State of Minnesota Gambling Board.

The Osseo Lions will prioritize requests to those that benefit the Osseo community as a whole, the local school district, youth and seniors and individuals in need in the local area.

The membership of The Osseo Lions retain the sole right to grant or deny any request.
