Due to COVID 19 measures our properties are temporarily closed, subsequently we are not currently taking sponsorship requests.
To help grow our PROUD commitment, we are always looking for opportunities to work with community leaders and organizations that effect positive change, in whatever capacity would be most valuable to them. Here are some common principles and values we look for in a PROUD community partner.
- We look to support groups and organizations whose mandate is local and whose work has a direct impact on their community.
- To create healthy and active relationships in our community, we strive for partnerships rather than a sponsorship.
- We value an organization’s diversity of programs they offer in support of their community.
- We expect groups and organizations to employ sound financial practices and sustainable funding tactics.
We encourage registered charities and non-profit organizations to contact us if they feel they are consistent with these principles, but regrettably we cannot support religious, political or advocacy groups, individual fundraising pursuits, or organizations that are inconsistent with our values.
Where the money goes
In British Columbia, approximately two-thirds of gross gaming revenue from the gaming facilities goes directly back to the government, through the BC Lottery Corporation, for the purpose of supporting programs like healthcare, education and social services. The remaining one-third of gaming revenue is retained by service providers, such as Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, to pay for wages, building costs, taxes and other operational services.
We believe that actions speak louder than words, which is why we always look for tangible opportunities to become involved with our community partners and organizations. By getting out there in our community to volunteer, help out, and give back our time, we strive to create a positive impact and produce visible results that ultimately help local organizations make our communities stronger for everyone to enjoy.
