Groups and Organizations Receive More Than $2 Million in Charitable Gaming Grants

Released on March 26, 2018

The latest quarterly payment of charitable gaming grants by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) has provided more than $2 million to more than 800 groups and organizations across the province.

“Groups and organizations that raise funds through charitable gaming activities receive additional dollars through the charitable gaming grant program,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “Our government is pleased to be able to help support service clubs, volunteer first responders, senior and youth groups and so many other important organizations focused on helping their communities.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Moose Jaw and surrounding area received $117,971; Yorkton and surrounding area received $100,377; Melfort and surrounding area received $80,884; Estevan/Weyburn and surrounding area received $48,567; and North Battleford and surrounding area received $43,789.

The quarterly grants are based on a percentage of net proceeds raised through licensed charitable gaming activities, such as bingos, raffles, breakopen tickets, and Texas Hold’em poker and Monte Carlo events.

Charitable gaming reports submitted by groups are used by SLGA to automatically calculate grants.
