Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Saskatchewan nonprofit community volunteer organizations to develop and provide programming for local residents in eligible locations. Funding is intended to increase engagements in cultural, recreational, and sport-related programs. Priority consideration will be given to programs that increase participation of underrepresented groups. Programs must take place in Lloydminster.

The goal of the program is to get people involved in sport, culture and recreation activities by enabling communities to address the needs of local residents. 

The Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program is guided by the following:

  • It provides access to sport, culture and recreation activities for all Saskatchewan people regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, economic status, physical or mental ability;
  • It provides funds to community non-profit volunteer organizations in support of sport, culture, and recreation programs;
  • It allows communities to establish local priorities; and
  • It stipulates that all participating groups, from administration to beneficiary, are responsible for ensuring complete and accurate accounting.

A portion of the total grants funds issued by the City of Lloydminster must be used for programs aimed at increasing participation for under-represented populations within the City of Lloydminster, either in regular programs and/or by creating special programs to meet their needs. Examples of under-represented populations include indigenous people, seniors, women, youth at risk, economically disadvantaged, persons with a disability and single-parent families.
