Released on May 14, 2019

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) has provided more than $1.6 million in gaming grants to approximately 1,100 community groups and organizations across the province.

“These groups and organizations raise money to support local programs that bring a wide variety of community benefits,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “Our government is pleased to provide additional support through the charitable gaming grant program.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Yorkton and surrounding area received $112,249; Estevan/Weyburn and surrounding area: $78,514; Humboldt and surrounding area: $83,340; Moose Jaw and surrounding area: $63,274; and Swift Current and surrounding area: $42,967.

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

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