Saskatchewan Communities Receive More Than $1.4 Million in Charitable Gaming Grants

Released on April 17, 2015

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is providing more than $1.4 million to more than 600 community groups and organizations across the province through its charitable gaming grant program.

“The charitable gaming grant program is an important contributor to a number of volunteer-based organizations that are essential to Saskatchewan communities,” Minister responsible for SLGA Don McMorris said.  “These dollars will further enhance the programs and services that these groups provide in their communities.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Moose Jaw and surrounding area received $90,781; Prince Albert and surrounding area: $77,754; Swift Current and surrounding area: $70,713; Meadow Lake and surrounding area: $63,689 and Estevan and surrounding area: $26,789.

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, up to a maximum grant of $100,000 annually.

Charitable gaming grants are paid quarterly.  Groups that conduct licensed charitable gaming activities and events do not have to apply for the charitable gaming grant.  Charitable gaming reports submitted by the groups are used by SLGA to calculate grants.
