More Than $1.5 Million In Charitable Gaming Grants Paid Out

Released on November 28, 2018

Groups and organizations across the province that conduct charitable gaming activities have received approximately $1.5 million from the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority’s charitable gaming grant program.

“The program provided more than 800 groups and organizations with funds that will help them to continue the important volunteer based programming they provide within their local communities,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “These groups support minor sports programs, art and cultural activities, seniors, health care initiatives and so many other worthy causes.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Prince Albert and surrounding area received $270,946; Yorkton and surrounding area: $121,722; Weyburn/Estevan and surrounding area: $48,430; Kindersley/Rosetown and surrounding area: $40,834; and Lloydminster and surrounding area: $38,899.

Charitable gaming grants are provided to groups and organizations that conduct licensed charitable gaming activities such as bingo, raffles, breakopens, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo events after they submit information to SLGA related to their gaming activity.

The value of the grant is 25 per cent of net charitable gaming proceeds to a maximum of $100,000 annually.
