Accepting sponsorship applications for the 2022-2023 year.

Fostering strength and self-sufficiency

One of the most important measures of a healthy community is how well its residents treat the less fortunate among them. Our proud tradition of Sharing Success guides our support of those in need. Our sponsorship program provides $1.3 million annually to charitable and non-profit organizations based in Saskatchewan. Our focus is on supporting initiatives that benefit children and youth, Elders, people who require social, physical or economic help, and those with disabilities.


Our vision of Sharing Success grows out of the teachings of our Elders and their belief in sharing our land, one of our guiding principles Wîtaskêwin. Today, Wîtaskêwin refers to sharing our resources. Each year, we support hundreds of organizations and events that are making a difference in our communities.
