Festival Reaches Children Across the Province

Fundholders Support Quality of Life Grant for Children’s Festival

Quality of Life is Saskatoon Community Foundation’s core unrestricted grants program, directed by the foundation to address areas of need and opportunity in our community. Quality of Life grants are supported through numerous endowed funds where fundholders have given the foundation discretion to make well- informed granting decisions based on our knowledge of the community. Many annual donors make charitable gifts through Give YXE to support the Quality of Life grants program.

The foundation supported the Nutrien Children’s Festival of Saskatchewan with a Quality of Life grant in 2021, helping the festival achieve its most successful year in 2021. The virtual four-day festival was presented free of charge for all households and classrooms. With a virtual format, the festival reached all corners of the province, with an estimated 30,942 children participating in artistic programming designed to build connection, self-confidence and inclusion.
