The Robert Steane Funds for the Arts

Bob Steane made a final legacy gift to the Saskatoon community in 2019, trusting Saskatoon Community Foundation and two hospital foundations to bring his gift to life.

A lifelong supporter of the arts, his desire was to give significant support to several community arts organizations, enabling them to flourish artistically and grow their resources and impact.

In 2020, Bob’s estate gift proved essential for eight organizations which were forced to adapt during the pandemic.
