Released on June 4, 2018

Volunteer fire departments, humane societies, amateur sports clubs and local service clubs are among 1,100 groups and organizations that received more than $1.2 million from the provincial government through its charitable gaming grant program this quarter.

“Saskatchewan communities are strong when its citizens step up and give their time as volunteers,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “As a government we’re pleased to support volunteer organizations by enhancing their fundraising efforts with charitable gaming grants.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Estevan and surrounding area received $77,817; North Battleford and surrounding area: $71,282; Prince Albert and surrounding area: $62,739; Swift Current and surrounding area: $50,378; and Lloydminster and surrounding area: $37,239.

The grants are provided to groups and organizations that conduct licensed charitable gaming activities such as bingos, raffles, breakopen ticket sales as well as Texas Hold’em poker and Monte Carlo events.

A grant equivalent to 25 per cent of the net proceeds raised from the gaming activity is automatically provided to the groups and organizations when they submit their charitable gaming reports.
