Welcome to the Community Initiatives Fund!

Many locally-led community projects and programs are being supported through the Saskatchewan Community Initiatives Fund. Our programs contribute to improved quality of life through grants supporting childhood development, positive life choices, active living, volunteerism, community celebrations and facility upgrades!


Deadline Approaching: April 1 at 4:00 p.m.

Annual Grants support programs and projects that enhance the healthy growth and development of children and youth, individual and community wellbeing, and/or nonprofit and community leadership. Annual grants support programs that are no more than 12 months in length and are not summer programs. Programs may be offered continuously throughout the year, may be for a defined time period (e.g., an 8 week program), or may be short-term projects such as a one-day training session.
