Our Grants

Proceeds from Saskatchewan Lotteries ticket sales go into the Saskatchewan 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 Saskatchewan Lotteries, SaskCulture, along with our partner, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, is able to offer various funding programs to support cultural activity in Saskatchewan.
