Current Grants

The Saskatoon Community Foundation supports the community by making strategic grants to many different charities. Ultimately, all of these grants come from donor gifts. Some, like our Quality of Life Grants, are created by combining groups of donors funds. Youth Endowment Saskatoon and the Community Fund for Reconciliation are funds created by the Foundation to invest in strategic focus areas. Corporate partners such as Nutrien and Macro properties have created their own granting programs, while other companies create their own funds or accounts from which to distribute their gifts to the community. Other grants come directly from donor funds designated to specific charities chosen by the donors.
