Building communities for all to prosper together and forever.

The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation serves as a bridge between donors and charities in Southern Saskatchewan.

We believe in facilitating Saskatchewan philanthropy, supporting local charities and developing our community so that our home is a more vital, strong, and fair place to live, work and play.

The success of our communities is measured by the results powered by you.

“Those who support the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation show us the way. You show us, by your example, that each of us has the power to make a difference, and together, we can address even the greatest challenges.”
