Groups And Organizations Benefit From Approximately $1.2 Million In Charitable Gaming Grants

Released on March 5, 2020

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority’s (SLGA) charitable gaming grant program has provided almost $1.2 million to more than 400 groups and organizations across the province during the most recent quarter ending December 31.

“Volunteers that raise money in their community in support of new facilities, minor sports, education programs and so many other worthwhile causes are the people that make our province strong,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said.  “Charitable gaming grants acknowledge those efforts by providing additional financial support to groups and organizations that conduct charitable gaming activities.”

Among the grants provided by SLGA this quarter: Humboldt and surrounding area received $67,979; North Battleford and surrounding area: $67,171; Swift Current and surrounding area: $42,377; Weyburn/Estevan and surrounding area: $37,623; and Moose Jaw and surrounding area: $34,869.

Charitable gaming includes bingos, raffles, breakopen tickets, Texas Hold’em poker and Monte Carlo events licensed by SLGA.  Groups and organizations receive a grant 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 automatically calculate grants.
