Annual Global Funding

Type of Funding: Operational Funding

SaskCulture allocates lottery funds in the form of annual global grants to Eligible Cultural Organizations. There are currently 30 eligible cultural organizations, serving the areas of arts, heritage and multiculturalism.

The AGF grants support the annual operations of Eligible Cultural Organizations identified on the Minister’s Eligibility List, as well as over 400 associated groups at provincial, regional and local levels through these Eligible organizations’ own project and member funding programs. These diverse cultural organizations are rooted in community involvement and volunteer efforts. They support a tremendous cultural infrastructure that empowers Saskatchewan's cultural community to deliver a wide selection of cultural activities and services throughout the province. 

The grant deadline is determined according to the organization's fiscal year end.
