Bingo Volunteer Program

Bingo grants are applied for and awarded by government funded umbrella groups listed below. Each umbrella sets its own criteria for eligibility. The umbrellas provide Manitoba Lotteries with a list of groups which are approved for funding. Manitoba Lotteries is then responsible for scheduling those groups to volunteer and will process payment of funds after their bingo session is complete.

To apply for the Bingo Volunteer Program, please contact one of the organizations below.
