Strategic Grantmaking is the core of what the Saskatoon Community Foundation does. Through the efforts of the Grants Committee, we support over 100 different charities each year. Our grants support a wide range of community needs, including poverty, education, health, arts & culture, people with disabilities, environment, family, children and youth, and many other worthy causes that matter to the people of Saskatoon. Since 1970, the Saskatoon Community Foundation has made hundreds of community grants totaling over 8 million dollars. Each of these hundreds of grants represents only a small piece of the charitable programs that make our community the best place to live.
The Quality of Life Granting Program is our core unrestricted granting program. In addition to Quality of Life, we have several other opportunities for charities to funding from corporate granting programs, donor funds and the Batting 1000 Endowment for Children and Youth.
