Your gift is as individual as you are. It reflects your values, hopes and traditions. That’s why we offer a range of giving options to help you give confidently and efficiently. Set up a donor-advised fund to actively participate in grant-making, or make a gift to the Smart and Caring Fund to support the community broadly, or focus on an issue that interests you. As a donor, you will have access to many charitable giving resources – including the foundation’s knowledgeable staff – for timely, personal advice and assistance about charitable giving.
Community foundations manage the charitable gifts of donors within permanent, income-earning funds. As the endowment grows over time, so does our ability to distribute the earnings of the funds to charitable organizations and causes within our communities in south Saskatchewan and throughout Canada. We have broad reach and tremendous impact.
Established in 1969, the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation covers one of the largest geographic territories of Canada’s 191 community foundations. We enjoy a reputation for community leadership and effectiveness. Because we grant to and work closely with so many charitable organizations, we have our finger on the pulse of the most current needs, trends and aspirations of this community.
The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation’s endowment is professionally managed. Even small gifts have access to astute investment management. Combined with experienced foundation leadership and community board oversight, this means legacy donors benefit from sound and reliable management of their gifts. That’s peace of mind.
At the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation, we want to ensure you know exactly how your donations are making a difference. Big or small, your contributions have a positive impact in our community.
