Government Provides $1.5 Million in Charitable Gaming Grants

Released on January 2, 2015

More than 700 groups and organizations across the province are receiving approximately $1.5 million through the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA)’s charitable gaming grant program.

“Volunteers in our communities are the people that coach minor sports, the local residents who work to raise funds for a new community facility or the individuals that tirelessly give their time to a service club,” Minister responsible for SLGA Don McMorris said.  “We’re grateful to have such generous people in our communities and our government is pleased to recognize those efforts by providing additional dollars through the charitable gaming grant program to help organizations continue their good work.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Melville and surrounding area received $97,524; Swift Current and surrounding area: $62,789; North Battleford and surrounding area: $59,690; Humboldt and surrounding area: $39,698 and Lloydminster and surrounding area: $34,320.

Groups that receive funds through licensed charitable gaming (bingo, raffles, breakopen ticket sales, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo events) receive a quarterly grant equal to 25 per cent of net proceeds raised through these activities.
