New! Donor Advised Spendable Fund

The Donor Advised Spendable Fund is an attractive new fund type which enables donors to make an impact in the community over several years with a fully spendable fund that also earns interest.

The Foundation has been near and dear to dad’s heart for a long time, and we were all very proud to support something that has meant so much to our parents.

For many, an estate gift is the most significant gift of their lifetime.

Donors who designate a gift in their will to one or more charities through Saskatoon Community Foundation become members of the Saskatoon Circle.

Membership in the Saskatoon Circle is for individuals who have communicated to Saskatoon Community Foundation their intention to make a future gift through a bequest, charitable trust, life insurance policy, or other estate plan.

What language should I use in my will to make a bequest?

Saskatoon Community Foundation strongly encourages every donor to consult with their lawyer on the wording used in their wills. The following language is provided only as a convenient resource for the donor and the legal counsel.
