Cameco Fund For Mental Health – Saskatchewan

Apply by Nov 4, 2021

It’s time to Step Up for Mental Health!

Established in 2019, Step Up for Mental Health is a Saskatoon-based run/walk to raise funds and awareness for mental health. Every dollar from registration fees, plus a matching amount from Cameco, supports the Cameco Fund for Mental Health. Step Up shifted to a virtual format in 2020 and 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but still attracted a combined 7,500 registrants for those events. All funds raised will be disbursed to Saskatchewan organizations undertaking projects that support mental health.

Step Up for Mental Health was established by Cameco in partnership with Brainsport, Saskatoon Community Foundation and the Saskatchewan Health Authority. Applications for funding will be adjudicated by a panel that includes mental health professionals, as well as representatives from Cameco and Saskatoon Community Foundation.

The 2021 Granting Program will disburse almost $400,000.
