Nutrien Saskatoon Community Foundation Gala

The final Nutrien Saskatoon Community Foundation Gala, “Walk with the Wind,” took place in 2022.

The gala series included wâseskwan – The Sky is Clearing (2017), Spirit of Fire (2018), and Earth Song (2019). Immersive experiences of dance, song, music, performance, fashion, visual art, and fine cuisine, the events raised funds for the foundation’s Community Fund for Reconciliation.

In 2017 the foundation’s Board of Directors committed $400,000 over four years for projects that address the Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report. The funds raised through the gala have been a major part of this commitment. Since 2017, Saskatoon Community Foundation has granted over $700,000 for Indigenous-led partnerships that advance reconciliation, thanks to the cultural advisors, sponsors, and a growing community of support.

On behalf of our board, cultural advisors Eugene and Lorna Arcand, gala co-chairs Tracy Muggli and Lisa Mooney, and the gala committee, thank you for supporting reconciliation.

“The need for reconciliation has never been greater and the winds of change are stirring our community to act for future generations. We are committed to continuing to walk together, with our many corporate partners and supporters, to build on the growth and shift in our community to bring systemic change and a vibrant future.”
