Generous donors, through partnership with the South Saskatchewan Community Foundation (SSCF), returned $6,594,329.20 back to 219 charities throughout 2022. This total equals over $2 million more than what was returned in 2021.
Donors who give back to their community with SSCF impact many community needs by funding charities to deliver essential programs. This includes, but is not limited to, focus areas of addictions, food security, shelter, children and youth, women and family safety, Indigenous causes, arts and culture, animal welfare, environmental needs, and healthcare.
Donna Ziegler, Executive Director at SSCF, expressed tremendous gratitude towards the community impact that donors and charities are creating across the region.
“Thank you to the donors, the charities, and the many acts of kindness that have made a difference for someone else. Because of your generosity, and those that came before us, the Foundation will continue to help community today, tomorrow, and for many years to come.”
Donna went on to explain that SSCF has ambitious goals to make an even bigger impact on their community. She said, ‘it was amazing for me to realize that we increased our granting amount by over $2 million in 2022. However, we know that the community’s needs far outweigh our capacity to serve them. While we saw more money out the door, we also saw record amounts of charities seeking competitive grants through SSCF in 2022. It is our responsibility to increase the funding available to charities in need and make the biggest difference possible in the community we reside in and love so dearly.”
SSCF will be seeking more donors, partnerships and resources in 2023 to continue to grow the moment of charitable giving across south Saskatchewan.
