Saskatchewan Benefits from Almost $2 Million in Charitable Gaming Grants Provided by Government

Released on November 28, 2016

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is providing almost $2.0 million in grants to the province’s groups and organizations that raise funds through charitable gaming activities in their communities.

“Charitable gaming grants provide dollars to local volunteer groups that are important to Saskatchewan communities,” Minister responsible for SLGA Jeremy Harrison said.  “Our communities are stronger because of these groups and organizations and our government is pleased to provide financial support.”

During the first quarter of this fiscal year, more than 900 organizations received grants across Saskatchewan.  Among the recipients were: Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada: $41,658; Saskatoon Blades Educational Scholarship Fund Inc.: $39,286; the Regina Rams Football Club: $92,345; Skate Canada – Saskatchewan Inc.: $46,182; the Prince Albert Midget AAA Mintos: $15,303 and the Moose Jaw Warriors Booster Club: $5,703.

Charitable gaming grants are equivalent to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised from gaming activities such as bingo, raffles, breakopens, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo events, to a maximum grant of $100,000 annually.

Saskatchewan is the only province to provide groups and organizations with a grant based on a percentage of their charitable gaming activity.

During the 2015-16 fiscal year, the Government of Saskatchewan paid out approximately $6.8 million in grants.
