Our Grants

Proceeds from Sask Lotteries ticket sales go into the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation and are in return invested into more than 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups throughout Saskatchewan. SaskCulture is responsible for the distribution of funds from the Culture Section of the Trust.

Thanks to the funds raised through Sask Lotteries, SaskCulture and our partners at SK Arts, are able to offer various funding programs to support cultural activity in Saskatchewan.
