At Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel we believe in giving back to our community in every way. Cash in on Kindness is more than a program. It’s a movement of compassion that empowers our guests to make a difference right here in Northern Michigan.

Making Change, Making an Impact

Each month a new organization is selected. Whether it’s a shelter, food bank, youth program or community center, we’re committed to getting funds into the hands of those who need it.

When you visit our casino, you’ll notice designated bins at our front entrance where you can donate spare change or TITO tickets.

Every penny counts and all contributions go directly to the charity selected for the month, benefiting our local communities.

This Month’s Charity:


The Leelanau County Cancer Foundation’s Mission is to help improve the quality of life for Leelanau County residents and their families who are touched by cancer.

Since 2016 the Leelanau County Cancer Foundation has provided funds for neighbors touched by cancer for their non-medical expenses. These payments can be a source of relief for patients and their families. We contribute toward household expenses like rent and mortgage payments, auto insurance and repairs, gasoline, dental bills, health insurance, utilities, child care, home and lawn maintenance. We also help with the cost of travel and lodging for distant care. When you contribute to the LCCF, that help goes directly to your neighbors… people who live in your community.
