"MAC helps out
The Metropolitan Airports Commission, which governs the airport, then granted the foundation a small retail space to raise funds to support its outreach programs and services. The retail outlet, sublet to the Minnesota Store with the foundation receiving a share of the profits, is in the North Star Crossing. That sector is one of the most successful airport retail venues in the world.
Another important source of funding came via Minnesota's approval of charitable gambling in 1988. The foundation sells pull tabs at its lottery booth at North Star Crossing, as well as Powerball tickets at both the Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals. The Powerball franchise is the most profitable in the state, with sales exceeding more than $1 million annually. "
