Three wealthy tribes set up charity endowment

Three Minnesota tribes with successful gaming operations have created a charity endowment that could grow to $100 million.

The Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, the Prairie Island Indian Community and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe say they will donate between $2.5 million to $5 million a year to other tribes and charitable organizations. The money is in addition to the donations each tribe makes individually.

The endowment will be managed by the Minnesota Community Foundation.
