Community foundations are one of the world’s fastest growing philanthropic movements, with more than 1,400 foundations in 42 countries. In Canada, Community Foundations of Canada includes 194 community foundations managing almost $3 billion in assets—a permanent nest egg for Canadian communities. Saskatoon Community Foundation manages an endowment worth more than $38 million with over $65 million in total assets managed. Saskatoon Community Foundation granted over $5,000,000 to charities in 2014.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community by strategically making grants to other charitable organizations – hunger programs, community theatre, adult literacy programs, summer environmental camps, programs for seniors, and many more.

Saskatoon Community Foundation holds donations in trust…in perpetuity. Only the income earned by the endowment is used to make grants. Every year, the foundation supports a wide range of community projects and initiatives.
