George Butt Supporting the Heart of Arcola
In 2008, George Butt created an endowed Fund through SSCF to benefit his hometown of Arcola for generations to come. Each year, the George Butt Foundation Fund provides support to Prairie Place Hall, Arcola Curling Club, St. Andrews United Church, and Arcola Cemetery.
Because George’s gift is endowed, it will continue to grow over time. This means his donation will continue to provide stable and consistent yearly funding to his hometown, forever.
Knight Archer Insurance's Commitment to Community
Giving back to community has been engrained in Knight Archer’s culture for many years. Community giving is in every employee’s individual plan, staff are given paid days off to volunteer, and one of Knight Archer’s five pillars is Community Partnerships. Tracy Archer says that opening the Funds at SSCF is a way of growing that pillar and making sure it’s a core part of Knight Archer’s business.
Knight Archer Insurance supports children, mental health, and inclusion and diversity in Regina and the 17 communities they serve across the prairies, including Humbolt, Lumsden, Craven, Pense, Yorkton, and several other municipalities.
The Saros Cowasjee Small Animal Fund
Throughout his life, Saros Cowasjee (1931-2019) was very generous both in his support, the time for students as a Professor and his passion for helping small animals. The Saros Cowasjee Small Animal Foundation Fund was established in 2008 at SSCF. The income from this Fund was often donated to Humane Societies throughout southern Saskatchewan.
Since his estate bestowment in 2020, the Fund was able to give back $62,657 in 2021 and $114,965 in 2022. His estate donated over $2.2 million to the Fund and the impact of granting from his Fund increased from $12k per year to over $100k per year – and it will only keep growing and giving.
