Charitable Gaming Grants Provide Approximately $1.7 Million To Communities Across The Province

Released on November 22, 2019

The provincial government is providing approximately $1.7 million to more than 900 community groups across the province through the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority’s (SLGA) charitable gaming grant program.

“The charitable gaming grant program provides a financial boost to the fundraising efforts of charitable groups and organizations across the province,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “Our government is pleased to be able to provide this support as it acknowledges and enhances the good work these groups are doing in their communities.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Yorkton and surrounding area received $122,455; Moose Jaw and surrounding area: $107,479; Humboldt and surrounding area: $87,514; Kindersley and surrounding area: $87,215; and Weyburn/Estevan and surrounding area: $47,359.

Charitable gaming grants are based on 25 per cent of net proceeds raised through licensed charitable gaming activities such as bingos, raffles, breakopen tickets, Texas Hold ’em poker and Monte Carlo events.  Groups that conduct licensed charitable gaming activities and events do not have to apply for the charitable gaming grant.

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