Funding Opportunities

Funding from the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund supports a range of cultural programs delivered by SaskCulture and by its partner the Saskatchewan Arts Board.

Thanks to the funds raised through Saskatchewan Lotteries, SaskCulture is able to offer various funding programs to support cultural activity in Saskatchewan.

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 Trustee for the Culture Section of the Trust.
