Government Provides More Than $900,000 To Volunteer Groups And Organizations Through Charitable Gaming Grants

Released on September 7, 2021

Groups and organizations that conduct charitable gaming activities are benefiting from more than $900,000 in grants from the provincial government's charitable gaming grant program.

"Charitable gaming grants provide a financial boost to volunteer groups and organizations across the province," Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority Jim Reiter said.  "Their work helps to enhance local communities in many different ways and our government is proud to provide this additional support to more than 300 groups and organizations."

Among the grants provided by Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) during the most recent quarter, Moose Jaw and surrounding area received $113,462; Humboldt and surrounding area, $110,931; Swift Current and surrounding area, $65,847; Estevan/Weyburn and surrounding area, $51,190; and Lloydminster and surrounding area, $45,239.

Groups that raise funds through licensed charitable gaming (bingo, raffles, breakopen ticket sales, Texas Hold 'em poker and Monte Carlo events) receive a quarterly grant equal to 25 per cent of net proceeds raised through 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 groups and organizations are used by SLGA to calculate grants.
