Partners

FUNDING PARTNER – The Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation was established in 1974 by Sask Sport Inc., pursuant to the Interprovincial Lotteries Act (1974), for the purpose of granting funds to eligible, non-profit volunteer organizations in the areas of sport, culture and recreation.

The Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation distributes Sask Lotteries proceeds to eligible sport, culture and recreation organizations in Saskatchewan. These eligible organizations are designated by the Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport based on meeting certain eligibility criteria. Volunteer committees from the sport, culture and recreation communities review and adjudicate all funding requests made to the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation from eligible organizations. There are approximately 1,200 groups which receive direct funding support and through them more than 12,000 affiliated organizations benefit. This includes grants to all communities and First Nations through the Community Grant Program as well as support for nine Sport, Culture and Recreation Districts.
