A number of community groups received a cheque through the charitable gaming grant program.
Groups that conduct charitable gaming activities, such as bingo or raffles, are eligible for the grant, paid by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority. The value of the grant is 25% of the net charitable proceeds, up to a maximum of $100,000.
“The program provided more than 800 groups and organizations with funds that will help them to continue the important volunteer based programming they provide within their local communities,” Minister Responsible for SLGA Gene Makowsky said in a statement. “These groups support minor sports programs, art and cultural activities, seniors, health care initiatives and so many other worthy causes.”
The groups that receive the grants can use them to help support their organization’s core programs and services.
