Government Provides Approximately $2.0 Million to Local Community Groups and Organizations

Released on June 24, 2016

Groups and organizations that raise funds through licensed charitable gaming are benefiting from approximately $2.0 million in grants provided by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA).

“Volunteer fire departments, youth sports teams and clubs that provide programming for seniors are just some of the groups and organizations in the province that benefit from charitable gaming grants,” Minister responsible for SLGA Don McMorris said.  “The groups that receive these grants are made up of volunteers who work hard to strengthen their communities and our government is pleased to provide this additional assistance.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Yorkton and surrounding area received $120,520; Melfort and surrounding area received $83,253; North Battleford and surrounding area: $77,679; Meadow Lake and surrounding area: $61,381 and Swift Current and surrounding area: $48,414.

Groups that conduct licensed charitable gaming activities such as bingo, raffles, breakopens, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo events are eligible for the quarterly grant.

The grant is equal to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised from the event, to a maximum grant of $100,000 annually.  Charities do not have to apply to receive the grant.  SLGA obtains the necessary information to calculate the grant from the paperwork submitted by the group or organization.
