Released on January 14, 2021

Approximately $1.3 million is being provided to Saskatchewan groups and organizations that conduct charitable gaming fundraisers.

“Our government is pleased to support the volunteers of our province who continue to make a difference in their communities,” Minister responsible for Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority Jim Reiter said.  “The charitable gaming grant program provides extra dollars that help these groups deliver their services in a variety of important sectors including public service, emergency services, health care and recreation.”

Among the grants provided by Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority during the past six months: North Battleford and surrounding area received $141,175; Humboldt and surrounding area: $57,629; Yorkton and surrounding area: $56,187; Estevan/Weyburn and surrounding area: $31,377; and Moose Jaw and surrounding area: $24,846.

A grant equal to 25 per cent of net proceeds raised through licensed charitable gaming (bingo, raffles, breakopen ticket sales, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo events) is paid quarterly to groups and organizations that conduct these events.  Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority calculates grant payments when groups and organizations submit their charitable gaming reports.
