Updated Resources & Website

We have updated our program guidelines, website, and other resources to better assist you with CIF's grant application and reporting processes. These updates include separating the Community Grant Program and Summer Grant Program into separate guidelines. We invite you to check out our newly organized website and updated resources. If you have any questions, reach out to us at rnewton@cifsask.org



Upcoming Deadlines & News 

New this year, the Summer Grant Program and Community Grant Program have their own set of Guidelines. CIF’s application intake for the Summer Grant Program (Deadline: February 1, 2021) and Community Grant Program (Deadline: April 1, 2021) will open on January 4, 2021.

COVID-19 may present unexpected challenges for Saskatchewan organizations that have received or are seeking CIF grants to support programs. For the health and safety of all, please adhere to current provincial regulations as well as the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan when considering your programming. We recognize that your CIF funded programs may be impacted and encourage you to check out CIF's Response to COVID-19 FAQ and contact us (rnewton@cifsask.org or asawatzky@cifsask.org) to discuss any anticipated changes and we'll work with you to explore options.

Reshaping Community Programming

Join our Facebook Group! How has your organization adapted programing in response to COVID? Do you know of resources or tools to help nonprofit organizations adapt their programming? We have created a space for Saskatchewan community program and service providers to share best practices, ask questions, network, collaborate, provide support for one another, and build connections across the province. We encourage you to start conversations, exchange ideas, ask questions, and share your success stories with each other. 

CIF also has gathered some tips, tools, and questions to consider.

 


Feature Story: BFHC Land Based Learning Healthy Living Project

Through the Land Based Learning Healthy Living Project, children, youth, families and seniors engage in active living while incorporating language, traditions/cultural knowledge, healthy eating, intergenerational interactions, social participation and community supports. Our learnings and teaching are deeply embedded into everything that we do.

Scam Alert!

There is someone that we believe is from the US posing as staff from the Community Initiatives Fund. They contact people through Facebook claiming that the person’s name is listed on CIF’s ‘winners list’ and request bank information to transfer their winnings. If you are contacted by someone in regard to this, we urge you to contact your local authorities.

To be clear, this is NOT the Community Initiatives Fund. We ONLY fund incorporated Saskatchewan nonprofit organizations through a rigorous application and review process. We do not provide funds to individuals. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Executive Director, Tracey Mann at 306.780.9395.
