B’nai Brith – A Tradition of Giving Back to Community

Categories: Blog, Community

Saskatoon B’nai Brith, chartered in 1913, has a long tradition of recognizing those who have provided exemplary volunteer service.

B’nai Brith “We’re Proud of You” Awards

The B’nai Brith We’re Proud of You Awards show appreciation for volunteer leaders and encourage others to follow in those important footsteps. A tribute fund is established in honour of the award recipient each year, and community members are invited to donate to that tribute fund in recognition of the individual or group. Find information on the B’nai Brith Silver Plate Dinner here.

B’nai Brith provides funding to multiple community organizations. B’nai Brith’s mandate for funding has been predominantly for youth related programs and activities.  Over the years, it has also funded multicultural, anti-racism, health, and mental health programs. Saskatoon Community Foundation continues to partner with B’nai Brith in administering funds raised for community.
