For Individuals and Families

Saskatoon is where your story began. Now, you can shape the community you love, by giving back to all the causes closest to your heart.

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.

— Linda Shaw, daughter of the Hon. Sid Buckwold, on the Buckwold Family Fund established in honour of the 60th wedding anniversary of Sid & Clarice Buckwold in 1999
