St. Albert charity suffers from charitable gaming models

At the end of 2022, Camrose Resorts Casino released some worrying data on St Albert’s charity. In the report, the casino said St. Albert’s gambling fundraiser generated nearly the lowest amount of revenue per game night in the state. This is why rural nonprofit organizations are calling for a change in the charity game model because it is disadvantageous.

St. Albert’s Casino Knight reportedly accumulates just CA$8,100 for each participation in a non-profit organization. The figure is the second-lowest in the province after Camrose, where the charity receives C$6,100. In contrast, the Edmonton charity receives CA$39,000 and Calgary Casino Night receives CA$42,000 or more per organization.

Like many other organizations in the province, the St. Albert family relies on casino nights for budgets. But there are some organizational problems for the St. Albert family, as the area is one of the highest waiting times for nonprofit organizations to participate in gambling nights. Organizations and NPOs have to wait an average of 31 months, which is not ideal for them.

Currently, according to the Alberta Games and Liquor Commission, access to gambling properties depends on their geographical location, so organizations in st. Albert can only gamble at local casinos. Doug Campbell, chairman of the St. Albert Community Foundation, said relying on casino nights for funding is a loss strategy and nonprofit organizations should not rely heavily on it.

Campbell said gaming nights allow organizations to improve basic programs and services. He believes that for St. Albert to have access to the Edmonton market, the solution must be multifaceted. He also added that bingo is not a viable option due to the popularity of VLT and that organizations that can raise funds through gambling nights should be innovative.

In addition, the organization’s president noted that the city’s situation is highly competitive as local businesses are being hit by support, and local organizations are competing with large Edmonton charities for corporate donations. And according to him, big city charities consider St. Albert a source of cash.

Tensions have grown in recent weeks, stemming from differences in accessibility between urban and rural jurisdictions. This is because AGLC rejected a request to relocate the Camrose Resort Casino to South Edmonton. The casino is owned by Capital City Casino and Chairman Jason Pesche is not happy with the Crown Agency’s decision to block the relocation.

He commented that AGLC had been treating rural charities unfairly for decades. He explained that the proposed relocation as the current pooling mechanism for Camrose and St Albert would have proved beneficial to hundreds of rural Albertans living in the community from the BC border to the Saskatchewan border.

An October 2022 hearing confirmed that the unprecedented situation of casino closures in 2020 and 2021 across Alberta had damaged the Edmonton charity. However, the Grand Villa Casino remained closed for an extended period. This turned out to be a problem for local charities that rely heavily on the returns of the property.
