Charitable Gaming Grants Provide Approximately $3 Million To More Than 1,500 Groups And Organizations

Released on August 4, 2020

Groups and organizations that conduct charitable gaming fundraisers in Saskatchewan have received approximately $3 million through the province’s charitable gaming grant program during the past six months.

“Charitable gaming grants help support new and upgraded community infrastructure projects, support senior’s programming and provide dollars to the minor sports that our youth and children enjoy,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “These programs help make communities strong and our government is pleased to provide grants that support these efforts.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA during the past six months: Yorkton and surrounding area received $245,537; Prince Albert and surrounding area: $237,736; Estevan/Weyburn and surrounding area: $146,329; Lloydminster and surrounding area: $94,666; and Swift Current and surrounding area: $86,487.

The charitable gaming grant program supports groups and organizations that conduct charitable gaming including licensed bingos, raffles, breakopen tickets, Texas Hold’em poker and Monte Carlo events.

Groups and organizations receive a grant equal to 25 per cent of the net revenues raised from these activities.  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 calculate grants and paid out on a bi-weekly basis each quarter.
