Government Distributes Charitable Gaming Grants Worth More Than $1.2 Million

Released on April 7, 2017

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is supporting groups and organizations in the province by providing more than $1.2 million in charitable gaming grants.

“Our government is pleased to acknowledge the fundraising efforts of volunteer groups and organizations by providing them with this additional financial support,” Minister responsible for SLGA Jeremy Harrison said.  “The grants will help groups and organizations further contribute to local programming that benefits everyone from children to seniors.”

More than 700 organizations across Saskatchewan received charitable gaming grants during the third quarter of the fiscal year.  Among the recipients were: Yorkton and area charities: $86,132; Swift Current and area charities: $35,090; the Queen City Kinsmen Club Inc.: $18,980; Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service Foundation (STARS): $100,358; and the Foam Lake Recreation Centre: $42,398.

The charitable gaming grant program supports groups and organizations that conduct charitable gaming including licensed bingos, raffles, breakopen tickets, Texas Hold em poker and Monte Carlo events.  Groups and organizations receive a grant equal to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised from these activities.

Charitable gaming reports submitted by the groups are used by SLGA to automatically calculate individual grants.
