Grants at South Saskatchewan Community Foundation

Are you a registered charity or qualified donee?

SSCF can only grant to registered charities or qualified donees, and a Department of National Revenue Taxation Charity Registration number is an eligibility requirement. If not registered, a formal partner with charitable status is required and a formal agreement with the partner included as part of a complete application.

How are grants decided?

Partnering with SSCF is an ideal way to support a program with an identifiable need. With the generosity of many donors, we are proud of the community impact that granting is having.

Many grants at SSCF result from recommendations that come from donors, such as from a Donor Advised Fund where donors play a critical consultative role in the selection process.


We are your philanthropic partner, here to ensure every dollar you give provides important impact in the community. Our grant-making expertise and community knowledge aligns your values and interests with community needs.


Applications to the Vital Community Fund are assessed by the Vital Community Fund Committee. For special, one-time SSCF granting opportunities, applications are reviewed by committee structure including community representatives, as appropriate.
