Since its inception, the Canterbury Park Minnesota Fund has provided nearly $1 Million in grants to organizations throughout our state. The application process will be open starting January 1, 2022 through March 31, 2022.
Canterbury Park considers charitable in-kind donation requests for registered 501c3 organizations in the seven-county metro area. Donations are not considered for the following: fundraising events for an individual or family, capital campaigns, individual or group travel, political causes, third party requests or internal corporate campaigns (i.e. United Way), or requests for operating expenses.
Leg Up Fund
Canterbury Park established the Leg Up Fund to assist injured and disabled Canterbury Park jockeys. Each year, our staff, horsemen and fans come together to raise money for this important cause. Watch for an upcoming Leg Up Fund event on our racing promotions page.
Canterbury Park is committed to making sure our guests enjoy our gaming opportunities in a responsible manner. If you or anyone you know needs help with a gambling problem, call the Minnesota Problem Gambling Hotline: 1-800-333-HOPE
