The Central Okanagan Charitable Gaming Association has worked with local not-for-profit groups since 2004.

What We Do.

Share Information

We assist groups by providing information from the BC Gaming Branch and other partner organizations – we conduct workshops for not-for-profit groups which plan to apply for gaming grant funding or have questions about the application process.

1-on-1 Support

We work one-on-one with organizations and help explain the provincial charitable gaming grant guidelines, assist in making connections to the Gaming Branch in Victoria, speak to applicants about denied grants, and provide general assistance.

Community Engagement

We are active in our community, reaching out to organizations which need assistance in either funding or governance, and help with connections that amplify their work in the community..

How We Do It.


The COCGA works with its collegiate community charitable gaming grant associations (CCGAs) throughout the province, from the north, on the Island, and in the lower mainland.

Much of our work is assisted by the BC Association for Charitable Gaming, the province-wide umbrella organization which assists CCGAs and works closely with the Gaming Branch in Victoria as well as the Vancouver Foundation, Vantage Point, SPARC, and advocates for policy changes with the provincial ministries with oversight of both gaming funds and the not-for-profit sector.
