Groups and organizations across the province are receiving approximately $2.7 million from the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority’s (SLGA) charitable gaming grant program.

“The charitable gaming grant program supports groups and organizations that fundraise through charitable gaming activities,” Minister responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “The efforts of these groups benefit many local initiatives including minor sports programs, educational endeavours and seniors’ programming and the grants acknowledge those efforts by providing additional financial support.”

More than 1,100 groups and organizations received grants from SLGA this quarter. Among the grants provided:
  • Moose Jaw and surrounding area received $236,151;
  • Prince Albert and surrounding area received $180,508;
  • North Battleford and surrounding area received $120,610;
  • Swift Current and surrounding area received $109,345; and,
  • Melfort and surrounding area received $100,819.
Licensed bingos, raffles, breakopen ticket sales, Texas Hold'em poker events and Monte Carlo events are among the charitable gaming activities eligible to receive a grant.

The grant is equal to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised from these activities, up to a maximum grant of $100,000 annually.  Charitable gaming reports submitted by the groups are used by SLGA to calculate the grants.
