To date, the Osage Nation has made $260,000 in charitable donations

The Osage Nation presented $100,000 in donations to nine Lake of the Ozarks entities that support public safety, veterans, education, and infrastructure.  

“We value the communities we call home and are proud to support these communities with charitable donations,” said Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear in a news release. 

“We are excited about our work to bring a world-class entertainment district to the Lake of the Ozarks. We want to be seen as an organization that adds value to the communities we work with and are thrilled to be making our third round of charitable donations to the Lake area,” said Kimberly Pearson, CEO of Osage Casinos in the release.

To date, the Osage Nation has made $260,000 in charitable donations.

In May 2022, the Nation held a liquidation sale of items at a former hotel that stood on the property that was demolished with the proceeds donated to two area nonprofits. That event raised more than $60,000.

In October of 2022, $100,000 in donations were given to seven Lake of the Ozarks entities. The Entertainment District project planned for the Lake of the Ozarks region is an estimated $60 million investment to the region, which will bring new jobs, tourism and revenue for the Lake of the Ozarks community. Phase 1 includes construction of a casino, sports bar, restaurant, and meeting space. Additionally, it also includes a hotel, which will have general hotel rooms, suites, a fitness and exercise facility, a pool and hot tub, and a pool bar.
