Saskatoon Community Foundation exists to enable philanthropy by providing opportunities for individuals, families, and business who are committed to addressing the pressing issues of Saskatoon in lasting ways with a goal to make Saskatoon the best community in which to live.

Every endowed fund at the Saskatoon Community Foundation represents a legacy created by a donor or group of donors. The reasons for establishing a fund are as varied as the individuals who make up a community. They may support a charity of choice or a favourite cause. They may support an area of focus in the community, or support a student in achieving educational goals. They may create a vehicle so that future generations of a family can be involved in philanthropy, or they may remember loved ones, community leaders, or events that shaped Saskatoon’s history. They may be created by gifts of cash or securities, life insurance or bequests. All our funds have one thing in common. All the donors gave to establish a permanent legacy of support for the Saskatoon community, and every one of these endowed funds will continue to give back to Saskatoon forever.
