Grants Committee Chair
Jay Stark, B.Comm, CFP has been successfully advising individuals, families and business owners on how to significantly reduce their income and estate taxes for more than 18 years. His presentations further expand on these key strategies and take full advantage of the tax incentives our government has created to encourage charitable giving. His counsel and expertise have helped hundreds of families realize their goals of giving back and create a lasting legacy.
Impacting a number of different communities in a positive way has always been important to Jay. From meeting his family’s sponsored child in Nicaragua through Compassion Canada, to being a Kinsmen member and working behind the scenes on their Telemiracle committee where he experienced firsthand the impact on families that have benefited from our province’s generosity. Jay’s community involvement extends even further, most recently as a board member for the Saskatoon Community Foundation, past chair of the Lakeview Church Board and the Free Methodist Foundation of Canada Board as well as the past co-chair of the KHL – an inner city hockey program targeting children that would not normally have the opportunity to play the sport.
Jay also gives back to his family by coaching and supporting his daughter’s sports teams, most recently his youngest daughter’s flag football team. As well he encourages social awareness and support within their family by developing a family plan that donates to local and global charities. Jay and Sheri have been married for over 20 years and have two teenage daughters, Alexandra and Sydney, and their family dog, Ginger. When not at work, you will find Jay paddling with his family in a canoe in Northern Saskatchewan.
