The South Saskatchewan Community Foundation is committed to and strives to improve the quality of community well-being for all our members and in creating healthy and resilient communities.

 

The Truth & Reconciliation Fund has been established to advance initiatives that support the Truth & Reconciliation Calls to Action. The SSCF has initially committed over $300,000 in the first year of a three-year funding initiative.

 

Donors wishing to match the $300,000 would provide more community opportunities to build and strengthen relationships that only together can provide a better future for everyone.

 

Donors can provide matching donations here:

IMPORTANT: SSCF can only grant to registered charities or qualified donees (including municipalities), 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.

Guidelines and Criteria

We believe in supporting projects and initiatives carried out by charities that will further the Calls to Action and support Indigenous led organizations and Indigenous community needs in south Saskatchewan. 

 

The Truth & Reconciliation Fund disbursements will be made in accordance with our granting policies and assisted by an advisory committee which will include representatives of the Indigenous community with whom SSCF has established a relationship and/or partnership. Our efforts together are to learn more about our past together and to find better ways to support a brighter future. 

 

The Fund will look to support applications of the following amounts:

Minor Grants: up to $9,999

Major Grants: $10,000+

 

The fund is intended to address programs that will help advance the Truth & Reconciliation Calls to Action in the areas of Education, Culture and Language. For example, this may include opportunities for children, youth and families to reconnect to their culture by providing opportunities such as workshops, events, classes that offer individuals and families connection to Elders, communities, and the Land. 

It is anticipated that immediate and longer-term needs will exceed the available funds. Grants will be made based on need and the availability of funding.

 

Applications will be received on a rolling basis until matching funds are disbursed in full.

 

Applications will be assessed and funds will be disbursed to successful applicants within 60 days after each quarterly deadline & review.
