Charitable Gaming Grants Provide More Than $2.1 Million To Local Groups And Organizations

Released on July 12, 2021

The provincial government has provided over $2.1 million through the charitable gaming grant program to support more than 700 groups and organizations across the province.  

"As Saskatchewan emerges from the pandemic and life returns to normal, volunteers have been eager to support important initiatives in their communities," Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority Jim Reiter said.  "These most recent charitable gaming grants will assist in those efforts and continue to help minor sports programs, local service clubs, educational endeavours and many other great services."

Among the grants provided by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) during the most recent quarter: 

  • Yorkton and surrounding area: $178,672;
  • Moose Jaw and surrounding area: $141,802;
  • Prince Albert and surrounding area: $115,759; 
  • Estevan/Weyburn and surrounding area: $97,137; and
  • Melfort/Nipawin and surrounding area: $61,542.

The quarterly grants paid by SLGA 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 as part of their charitable gaming licence are used by SLGA to automatically calculate grant amounts.
