Guidelines and Criteria

The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation (SSCF) grants to charitable activities that promote and enhance vibrant, healthy and caring communities in south Saskatchewan. The purpose of the South Saskatchewan Vital Community Fund is to allow the SSCF to respond to areas of focus identified in its current Vital Signs Report.

The Vital Signs research identifies five emerging issues:


1) Supporting Safe and Affordable Housing;

2) Increasing Food Security;

3) Improving Mental Health Services for Substance Use and Suicide Prevention;

4) Sustaining Community Infrastructure; and

5) Community Funding Gaps.

(Activities must take place in south Saskatchewan: from Davidson west to the Alberta border, east to the Manitoba border, and south to the United States border.)
