Province Provides More Than $1.3 Million in Charitable Gaming Grants

Released on January 17, 2017

Groups and organizations across the province are receiving more than $1.3 million in charitable gaming grants from the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA).

“Communities have minor sports programs, clubs for senior citizens, enhanced recreational facilities and many other vital programs and services thanks to the hard work of volunteers,” Minister responsible for SLGA Jeremy Harrison said. “Many of these groups and organizations rely on their own fundraising to provide these programs and as a government we’re pleased to provide additional support through the charitable gaming grant program.” 

More than 700 organizations across Saskatchewan received charitable gaming grants during the second quarter of the fiscal year. 

Among the recipients were: Estevan/Weyburn and area charities: $62,821; North Battleford and area charities: $57,755; the Hospitals of Regina Foundation Inc.: $99,348; The Canadian Red Cross Society: $63,880; and the Assiniboia Civic Improvement Association: $62,291. 

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.
